Manila Bay establishments told to fix sewer lines
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is now requiring all establishments around Manila Bay to connect to existing sewer lines or set up their own sewerage treatment plants (STPs). In a recently issued memorandum circular, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said establishments are required to either “connect to existing sewerage systems or to construct individual STPs” to ensure that wastewater is properly collected and treated. The circular covers all government facilities, subdivisions, condominiums, commercial centers, hotels, sports and recreational facilities, hospitals, marketplaces, public buildings, industrial complex and other similar establishments.
