MetadataShow full item record
A multiagency task force monitoring the oil spill in Estancia, Iloilo province, has directed a firm that got an P87-million contract to clean up the spill site to do a thorough job. “In our inspection of the contaminated areas, we found that some sites that were reported to have been cleaned up still had bunker fuel and oily debris,” said Rex Sadaba, consultant of Power Barge 103 Oil Spill Task Force and manager of the University of the Philippines Visayas Oil Spill Program. The task force is composed of the Iloilo provincial government and various agencies including the Coast Guard, Department of Health and the private firm Kuan Yu Global Technologies Inc.
