River deadline: It’s December
MetadataShow full item record
Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu on Wednesday ordered a December deadline for the cleanup of Navotas City’s Bangkulasi River, one of the filthy water bodies that drain into Manila Bay. “Cleaning up the Bangkulasi River, which is part of the Malabon-Navotas River system, is an essential part of the Manila Bay Rehabilitation program because the river system directly empties into the historic bay,” he said. He instructed the Department of Environment and Natural Resources team assigned to the river system to “produce drastic improvements by December this year” in order to reduce the fecal coliform levels in Manila Bay by yearend.
