DENR PREPARES TO REHABILITATE MANILA BAY
Following the six-month rehabilitation of Boracay, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is preparing to rehabilitate Manila Bay replicating the strategy used during Boracay rehabilitation.
The waters of the bay are considered the most polluted in the country due to domestic sewage, toxic industrial liquid wastes from factories and shipping operations, among others.
DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu is keen to have the bay restored which is fit for swimming, skin diving, and other contact forms of recreation.
He added the government will show the same level of political will in cleaning up the bay that spans three major regions namely the National Capital Region, Central Luzon and CALABARZON.
