Navotas scores high in Manila Bay cleanup compliance

Navotas City received a 94.2-percent mark in the 2019 Assessment of Compliance of Local Government Units to Manila Bay Clean up, Rehabilitation and Preservation Program (MBCRPP).

Navotas was among the top five LGUs that actively pursued the Supreme Court mandamus that ordered government agencies to “clean up, rehabilitate and preserve Manila Bay” and restore its water quality to make it fit for swimming and other contact recreation.

Mayor Toby Tiangco urged Navoteños and barangay officials to continue efforts to help maintain cleanliness of water bodies surrounding the city.

“Fishing is our main source of livelihood and as a fishing community, we should place utmost importance to keeping the health and condition of our seas and rivers,” he said.

“We have policies and programs to keep our seas and rivers clean and bring back their water quality to swimming level. However, we need everyone’s support and participation to make these policies and programs successful,” he added.

Navotas implements ordinances on anti-littering, proper sewage and septage requirement for households, institutions and establishments, among others.

It also actively participates in the Battle for Manila Bay clean-up drive, collecting 2,267,087 kilos of garbage since January to December 2019.

Furthermore, the city continues its efforts to provide new homes to informal settler families living along coastlines and waterways.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources and San Miguel Corp., on the other hand, have started a sustainable dredging program for the Tullahan-Tinajeros river system.

Aside from the removal of silts, debris and garbage at the bottom of the river, the dredging program is also expected to help prevent flooding in Bulacan.
