DENR yearend report 2019: Saving Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Early 2019 saw the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) rallying all concerned sectors to work together and support efforts to rehabilitate the heavily polluted Manila Bay. Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu even gave commitment that DENR personnel will be “at the front row” to achieve the goal of making the coastal waters of Manila Bay fit for swimming again. Although Manila Bay is still known for having one of the most beautiful sunsets, its waters are considered the most polluted in the country due to domestic sewage, toxic industrial effluents from factories and shipping operations, and leachate from garbage dumps.
