How dirty is the Iloilo River?
MetadataShow full item record
The Iloilo River is among the trademarks of this capital city. It is an estuary – an arm of the sea – which now became an attraction with kilometer-long esplanades built on its banks. Locals and non-locals enjoy a walk or a jog at the river park that is the Iloilo River Esplanade. Its landscape primarily depends on the natural beauty of the river, which traverses through the City of Love’s six districts – Lapuz, La Paz, Mandurriao, Molo, Arevalo, and City Proper. Being one of the city’s gems, the river is praised for its exquisiteness. But little ugly creatures hide within its waters – hundreds of thousands of coliform bacteria.
