Iloilo River still dirty
MetadataShow full item record

The group said they don’t mind the sometimes murky and smelly water because they are used to it. What they should be concerned about is the high coliform levels in the Iloilo River despite almost three years of cleanup efforts by the city government and other concerned agencies.
