The Navotas City Government, together with representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and other agencies led by Assistant Secretary Rico Salazar, has kicked off the clean-up drive for Bangkulasi River.

The river was found to contain a high level of fecal coliform, a type of bacteria that comes from human or animal waste.

Mayor Toby Tiangco vowed that the city government will do its utmost to clean the river and improve its water quality.  

“Last week, we conducted a dialogue with the fisherfolk families who will be affected by the clean-up drive. We explained to them why we need to transfer their boats from the river to the Navotas Fish Port,” he said.

Tiangco also instructed concerned city government offices and barangays to ensure continuous clean-up operations and monitor success of the river rehabilitation program.

Earlier, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said cleaning the Bangkulasi segment is crucial to the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Program, setting a December deadline to produce drastic improvements in the river.

Present during the kick off were representatives from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority, Philippine National Police-Navotas, and PNP-Maritime.

Also present were officials of Brgys. North Bay Boulevard South (NBBS) Kaunlaran, NBBS Dagat-dagatan and Bangkulasi as well as employees of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, City Agriculture Office and City Engineering Office.
