The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is planning to bring in larger machines to help remove deep-seated sediment from Manila Bay, an official said yesterday. “We are now encountering difficulty. The sediments in the outer sea area are more compact, maybe because there are already several layers of sediment that have solidified over the years. So now we are assembling a larger amphibious excavator to loosen the sediment in the Manila Bay,” said Noel Ilao, DPWH Bureau of Equipment director. The DPWH has been using 28 pieces of equipment, including three new amphibious excavators, two dumping scows and a debris segregator for the Manila Bay cleanup.
