Digong mentioned Manila Bay clean-up...

Result: Nagkukumahog lahat para tumugon sa panawagan...DENR, DOT, DILG, LGU, etc...

Anong meron kay Digong na kailangang sundin?
Yan ba ang tinatawag na political will or diktador lang talaga si Digong?

For sure dadami ang mga MEMA...

DENR urged to declare Manila Bay as ‘reclamation-free zone’
Gaea Katreena Cabico (philstar.com) - January 14, 2019 - 3:38pm


MANILA, Philippines — A fisherfolk group on Monday called on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to declare Manila Bay as a “reclamation-free zone” as the agency beefed up efforts to restore the natural harbor to its pristine state.

In a statement, Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas stressed that declaring Manila Bay as a “reclamation-free zone” would help in rehabilitating one of the country’s major fishing grounds, which is currently suffering from environmental degradation stage.

‘Strict law enforcement needed for Manila Bay cleanup’“While Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu blames Manila Bay residents of disposing garbage and domestic wastes in the sea, he failed to address on the other hand the lethal risk of massive reclamation projects to the marine environment and ecosystem,” Fernando Hicap, Pamalakaya national chairperson, said.

Hicap explained that reclamation causes traditional fish and shellfish species in Manila Bay to get extinct because coral reefs and mangrove forests have been destroyed to give way to commercial business districts and private establishments.

One of the long-term effects of reclamation projects is the dwindling fish catch, which drops to two to five kilos every fishing trip, he added.

Hicap, a fisherman in Manila Bay, also stressed that reclamation would lead to the displacements of “hundreds of thousands of fisherfolk and urban poor families.” He cited that at least 30,000 fishing and urban poor families were displaced to construct the SM Mall of Asia, Solaire Resort and Casino and other government establishments situated along Roxas Boulevard.

“We demand the DENR to cease and desist from granting environmental permits to any project that threatens the environment and rights of the fisherfolk,” he said.

The Pamalakaya national chairperson added: “The government should instead promote a genuine rehabilitation program that will not violate the community rights of the fisherfolk and coastal settlers and will restore the traditional use of Manila Bay as a fishing ground.”

Last week, Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año said the agency is mulling a review of all reclamation projects in Manila Bay. The projects involve the reclamation of at least 26,230 hectares of Manila Bay.

The rehabilitation of Manila Bay became the government’s “next big target” after the rehabilitation of Boracay.

The planned rehabilitation of Manila Bay would be in three phases—clean-up and water quality improvement, rehabilitation, and protection and sustainability.

Sure ako magiging source of corruption lang ang bagong advocacy ni Digong..
47B ang budget? wow...
Baka kalahati nyan panggasta sa 2019 midterm election....

Paano na lang ang 37k na mga illegal settlers na tatamaan ng clean-up?
Hindi ba kayo nag-iisip ng human rights nila?
Karapatan din nilang mamuhay ng maayos sa tabi ng mga estero...

Digong, wag mo na kaming bolahin...

Oo naman..botante din ang mga yan..
Karamihan sa kanila DDS..
Isang latang sardinas lang, noddles saka bigas, solve na..
Tapos ngayon apektado sila sa mga kalokohan ni Digong?
Anong clean-up? Malinis naman ang Manila Bay...
Calling CHR...this is a clear human rights violation...
Uprooting people from the estero to better relocation site is not right...

Let's not vote for Digong's candidates on May 2019...

Manila Bay cleanup

SKETCHES - Ana Marie Pamintuan (The Philippine Star) - January 16, 2019 - 12:00am


My mother’s generation talks about the days when rafts could be hired in Pasay to go out to Manila Bay on dates or for family picnics.

Farther south in Parañaque were beach resorts with private rooms where even movie stars dated.

The resorts dotted coastal communities all the way to the southern tip of Cavite. But water pollution must have been a problem dating back to the time of the Philippine revolutionaries under Cavite’s favorite son Emilio Aguinaldo – or perhaps even longer, since it was a populated area with no sewerage system or water treatment facilities.

In my childhood during one of my family’s beach picnics, we went to one of the resorts in Cavite, where I stepped on a discarded tin can embedded in the seabed, not visible in the turbid water and black sand. I can still remember howling in pain as the doctor in a nearby clinic cleaned and treated the deep cut in the sole of my right foot; the scar remains.

During the Marcos regime, a crony family picked a prime spot and developed it into the exclusive 3,300-hectare Puerto Azul country club in Ternate, which quickly became popular for golf and water sports.

This was only possible because the quality of the water was still relatively good in the 1980s.

After the Marcoses fled, Puerto Azul was sequestered and fell into disrepair, while the water quality in Manila Bay progressively deteriorated.

* * *

Swimming has been banned in Manila Bay for many years now, for public health reasons. But we have many images of bay guards watching helplessly as thousands of people swarm the rocky shores of Roxas Boulevard and swim in the murky water, ignoring warnings that they could get the cooties or worse.

Today garbage still washes up regularly on the shores of Cavite. There’s a restaurant in Cavite City that I visit regularly because it’s beside a spot where fishermen unload their day’s catch of shrimp and squid. The place serves good Hawaiian and sisig pizza and Cavite coffee and faces the sea. But the lovely sea view is marred by the garbage that always litters the narrow beach. If not for the sea breeze that lifts and carries away odors, the place would stink. If ever President Duterte visits the place, he might mention “cesspool” again.

Local government officials, starting with barangay personnel, should be spearheading the regular cleanup of coastal areas, in coordination with private sector stakeholders. Local officials in Cavite have clearly failed.

Puerto Azul is still being used for golf, but it needs a major facelift. It’s a shame because that spot wasn’t picked arbitrarily for resort development; it has a great sea view and the natural attraction is still there. It’s a relatively short drive from Metro Manila, and once the road leaves the populated areas, the drive is pleasant and the Ternate landscape delightful.

With the government now bent on cleaning up Manila Bay, perhaps the beach resorts in Cavite could be compelled to do their part in cleaning up. The owners’ cooperation could be stronger if they realize that clean waters would mean more visitors and a business boom.

Because of the polluted waters of Cavite, people are prepared to take longer drives to the beaches of neighboring Batangas, where local officials and private resort operators are aware of the appeal of ecotourism.

A few years after my foot injury, a relative bought a resthouse in Nasugbu’s Tali Beach, with its white sand and the water so sparklingly clear I could see small jellyfish approaching and avoid stepping on the sea urchins. The water quality was so good my father and I could pick oysters from a cave wall, dip them in the seawater and eat them raw without being hit by food poisoning. I never went swimming in Cavite again.

So I’d like to see if the government can make good on its promise to make Manila Bay fit for swimming again.

* * *

Environment officials are making the right noises so far on how they plan to go about the cleanup.

President Duterte used his usual golpe de gulat to deliver his message, threatening to shut down bayfront hotels that fail to install their own water treatment facilities.

The hotel association has already expressed its members’ readiness to comply. There are bigger bay polluters, however, as indicated during typhoons, when tons of garbage wash up along Roxas Boulevard including the service road.

That solid waste does not come from the hotels, but from the informal settlements and fishing communities around the bay. Author Dan Brown’s “Gates of Hell” is a charcoal-making slum settlement dubbed Ulingan, facing the bay in Manila’s port district.

The garbage also washes out into the sea from the numerous esteros or creeks and other waterways in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

You can tell the quality of governance in Metro Manila’s cities by the quality of the waterways. In several esteros, the water is no longer visible because of a dense carpet of garbage.

Environment officials have said the Manila Bay cleanup will include waterways around it. Commercial and industrial establishments around the bay will also be inspected for garbage management practices and the release of sludge.

Now what about the waste from the country’s busiest seaport? All types of vessels enter Manila Bay. No matter how energy-efficient, the ships discharge certain amounts of toxic waste into the water. Manila’s Port Area is also heavily polluted.

* * *

Still, we should believe that anything is possible if we put our heart into it. A similar campaign was launched to clean up the Pasig River, which used to look like an open sewer where aborted fetuses and corpses of murder victims were often fished out. The joke at the time was that if you jumped into the Pasig, you would die not from drowning but from suffocating in the filth.

The cleanup gained traction during the presidency of Fidel Ramos, who liked to narrate that he used to swim in the Pasig. His wife Ming spearheaded the effort; Gina Lopez, later named environment secretary by President Duterte, continues to be an advocate of the river rehab.

I’ve been encouraging people to take the river ferry service to see the success of the effort. It still has some ways to go, but the improvement is visible. In some spots such as Guadalupe in Makati, the water quality has improved enough for people to take to fishing not just for their day’s meal but also for sport.

Who thought this was possible? We could be in for a similar pleasant surprise in Manila Bay.

DENR to fine establishments up to P200,000 for polluting Manila Bay

Janella Paris
Updated 12:03 AM, January 16, 2019


MANILA, Philippines – Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said on Tuesday, January 15, that establishments in the Manila Bay Area without proper sewerage treatment plants (STPs) could be fined between P20,000 and P200,000.

The fine would depend on how much waste the establishments emit into the bay.


Establishments found to be noncompliant will also be compelled to set up STPs or fix existing ones.

Cimatu said that the Department of Environment and Natural Resource (DENR) would announce the list of noncompliant establishments on January 27, the date that the Manila Rehabiliation Project is set to begin.

Asked to identify some establishments on the list, Cimatu said that the DENR is still making rounds in the Manila Bay area to identify them. He also said that he could not give a figure of how many establishments could be suspect.

Republic Act 9275 or the Clean Water Act of 2004 makes the Department of Natural Resources responsible for identifying entities that violate environmental laws.

Relocation

The rehabilitation efforts are also seen to displace around 220,000 families living near the bay and its waterways.

The Manila Bay Area is around 1,990 square kilometers, covering Metropolitan Manila, Calabarzon, and Central Luzon.

The Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA) reports that around 30% of the Philippine population resides in the MBA. Based on the Philippine population in The World Bank Report of 2017, the 30% represents approximately 23 million people, about 10 million of whom live in coastal areas. However, the report does account for those who live near Manila Bay tributaries who also benefit from and contribute to the conditions of the bay's system.

According to Cimatu, relocation of families to areas outside Metro Manila will be coordinated with the Department of the Interior and Government (DILG) and the National Housing Authority (NHA).

He added that livelihood programs will be ensured for the relocated families. The environment secretary expressed hope that violence would not mar the relocation of families, but that “if they (informal settlers) will be hostile we are prepared to face them.”

Recreation

Some parts of Manila Bay’s coastline, particularly in its provincial areas, will be open to recreation by December 2019, DENR Supervising Undersecretary for the Manila Bay Coordinating Office Sherwin Rigor hopes.

He said the DENR aims at reducing fecal coliform levels to less than 270 million MPN (most probable number) per 100 mL by the end of 2019, which will render parts of the bay safe for activities like swimming and skin diving.

Currently, Manila Bay’s fecal coliform level is at 330 million MPN/100 mL. The safe level is 100 MPN/100 mL, which is roughly the volume of a Yakult bottle, as described by Rigor.

He clarified that not the entire bay would be fit for swimming, saying it would take years to achieve a Manila Bay completely fit for recreation. – Rappler.com
