In all seriousness gusto ko tong initiative ng government about manila bay.

Big big task na maraming gagalawin, pero pag walang kumilos, walang mangyayari.

About the squatters, kawawa naman kaming malapit sa tapunan nila. Nahahaluan lugar namin ng ganyan, although di lahat, mangilan ngilan sa kanila e halang ang bituka.

Manila Bay cleanup starts Jan. 27
SHOOTING STRAIGHT - Bobit S. Avila (The Philippine Star) - January 17, 2019 - 12:00am


As we literally restarted the talk about the cleaning up of Manila Bay when my good friend, Robert “Bobby” Joseph was given the title of Commodore of the Manila Yacht Club, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu attended this historic meeting… but as my readers know, kidney transplant patients have to have a lesser workload to stay healthy. So instead I would ask Commodore Bobby Joseph for his comments on the Jan. 15 meeting. This is a series of texts sent by Commodore Bobby Joseph on my question how was the meeting?

“The Secretary (Cimatu) conveyed to the group a no nonsense approach and he cannot accept excuses. He has presented a comprehensive action plan and the launching of the Manila Bay cleanup will start at the Manila Yacht Club on Jan. 27 at 9 a.m. I hope you can come and attend this.”

Commodore Bobby Joseph sent me another text to answer the question on how was the meeting in DENR? His text message, “Super great and amazing day. Seeing all the top honchos of government agencies supporting the action plan for immediate, short and medium up to long term plan of seven years with P47 billion and around P36 billion going to the housing and allowance and transfer of dwellers along waterways. We expect in three months a dramatic cleanup of all esteros.

Ten thousand men will be assigned in designated esteros with proper equipment and logistics to take out all the silt, mud and waste. Construct steps in government buildings, hospitals, Manila Zoo and the rest of Metro Manila and the suburbs. All buildings, malls, warehouses and factories will be inspected thoroughly. Those who refuse to implement will be fined daily from P20,000 to P200,000! Coliform level has reached over a billion plus while the normal level should only be 100!”

In Bobby Joseph’s Facebook page he posted what the DENR presented as their charts for all who attended the meeting to evaluate. For instance, they had a chart on the Supreme Court’s Mandamus G.R. No. 171947 dated Dec. 18, 2008 directing 13 government agencies to clean up Manila Bay and restore its water to safe levels. This was the Mandamus that Sec. Roy Cimatu talked about in the media presentation.

Then the DENR presented a chart that revealed the DENR tasks… to implement components of the Operational Plan for Manila Bay Coastal Strategy (OPMBCS) within its mandate. Then to coordinate with all mandamus agencies and other agencies involved in management of Manila Bay on effective implementation of OPMBCS. Then DENR would manage water quality standards for Manila Bay through standard setting, regular monitoring and determination of Water Quality Management Areas (WQMA).

Thanks again Sir Bobby for posting those 35 charts presented by the DENR during the Jan. 15 meeting. It was as if I was really in that meeting. At this point let me say that thanks to the legal cases filed by my good friend and fellow Cebuano Atty. Antonio Oposa Jr. our Supreme Court (SC) finally woke up to the reality that as far back as year 2008, the waters of Manila Bay was already seriously contaminated. It needed national government agencies to implement a cleanup drive. But it was not implemented at all by the 13 government agencies. I guess they had other better things to do.

Then came the six long years of the Aquino Presidency that even stopped the Laguna Bay development by a Netherlands company… it then worsened things in Manila Bay. Well, it took an 11-year slumber for Manila Bay to continue suffering due to the neglect of government agencies. I also blame the SC for not punishing the 13 government agencies for disobeying a SC mandamus. At this point, I would like to believe that some of the charts that the DENR presented were already done a long time ago. But since the DENR did not push through with the Mandamus order, they just kept those charts in storage until there was a reason to bring them out.

Enter the participation of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte last Tuesday when he warned hotels along Roxas Blvd. that they would be closed if the regulators found out that they were dumping their waste into Manila Bay? Suddenly the 13 Mandamus agencies sprang back to life and prepared what they must have earlier prepared to clean up Manila Bay. With the participation of Pres. Duterte, everyone knows that he has the political will to implement what he wants to be implemented.

So come Jan. 27 the DENR would do the formal launching of the cleanup of Manila Bay at the Manila Yacht Club at 9 a.m. and change the course of Philippine history. A wonderful and historic Manila Bay where once people came to view the sunset and take a nice swim deteriorated due to human abuse. Now finally the national government has taken cognizance of Manila Bay’s environmental protection and restoration!

How to rehab Manila Bay — earth lawyer Oposa
GOTCHA - Jarius Bondoc (The Philippine Star) - January 18, 2019 - 12:00am

Twenty years ago this month a band of law students and conscientious citizens filed an ambitious lawsuit to make the government clean up Manila Bay. At the time, Jan. 1999, people already were complaining about the stench, litter, and color of the water.

For water to be swimmable, bacteria level must be no more than 100 units per cubic meter, says environment lawyer Tony Oposa. Yet Manila Bay bacteria back then was already an alarming one million units per cubic meter.

Ten years and many case twists later, the Supreme Court granted their prayer. Not only were the authorities ordered to clean up the bay but also to report quarterly their progress. Covered by that continuing mandamus of Dec. 2008 were the Depts. of Environment and Natural Resources, Interior and Local Government, Health, Budget and Management, Public Works and Highways, Education, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, PNP-Maritime Command, Coast Guard, Ports Authority, Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, Local Water Utilities Administration, Laguna Lake Development Authority, Metro Manila Development Authority, and the mayors, governors, and chairmen of cities, towns, provinces, and barangays fronting the bay. Included too were officials of locales through which rivers and streams flow and empty into it.

(Oposa led that victorious petition. Ironically it had to take a Visayan like him to work for Manila Bay’s revitalization.)

Given the breadth and depth of the Supreme Court ruling, one would expect a turnaround. At last the Solid Waste Management Act, Clean Water Act, and other environment and sanitation laws would be enforced. But in the Philippines, Oposa laments, the law is only a suggestion. Successive agency heads ignored the Supreme Court order. Not one has been punished for it.

Today, after another ten years of no cleanup, Manila Bay’s bacterial level is 330 million units per cubic meter. Oposa calls it an unflushed toilet bowl.

Rehabilitating the bay seems a formidable task. In complying with President Rodrigo Duterte’s cleanup order, the DENR is starting with a handful of hotels in Manila and Pasay cities fronting the bay. The LLDA adds 204 establishments along the Pasig River. Housing authorities are looking into relocating squatters along the Estero de San Antonio Abad, where coliform is at 1.3 billion parts per liter.

Those are good enough starts. But for the authorities to announce that Manila Bay would be swimmable by Christmas 2019 makes one wonder if the work would be thorough. Tens of thousands of sewage treatment plants need to be set up by subdivisions and buildings, millions of septic tanks need to be dug up in homes, and generations of bad garbage habits need to be changed. For one, the 60-year-old Manila Zoo, with no sewage treatment plant, spews human and animal waste onto the Estero de San Antonio Abad. What more the older government facilities in Mega Manila? Even the poshest new subdivisions straddling Laguna and Cavite eject raw household septage onto Laguna de Bay, part of Manila Bay’s ecosystem.

Oposa suggests three focuses of the rehab: (1) garbage, the most visible dirt, (2) sewage and septage, and (3) squatter relocation.

Heroes of garbage disposal must be recognized, he says. That means residents and subdivisions that practice segregation, composting, and recycling. As well, enforcers of separation of wet and dry wastes, and operators of materials recovery facilities.

The objective is obvious: emulation and education. The authorities can then pick out the stubborn for punishment.

Sewage and septage are basically the duty of the MWSS, Oposa says. It regulates the two water concessionaires, Manila Water Co. and Maynilad Water Resources. Since 1997 both have been collecting sewerage fee along with customers’ monthly bills. Those fees are supposed to be used to set up sewage treatment plants, so that only clean water flows into the Manila Bay. Oposa says they should be asked why the bacteria levels still rose from one million to 330 million units. Not one to just complain, Oposa also designed an inexpensive septage system – mini-wetlands, he calls them – applicable for homes and subdivisions.

Relocation is the duty of housing and local government officials. Thousands of hectares of government lands remain idle. Those can be used for in-city tenement housing with proper parks and sewerage.

The authorities would do well to consult Oposa on the Manila Bay rehab. He conceived the idea two decades ago, won the historic court ruling, and has expert contacts worldwide to help in the various aspects of the endeavor. Oposa is a national treasure.

DENR finalizing informal settler relocation plan

Rhodina Villanueva, Jose Rodel Clapano (The Philippine Star) - January 19, 2019 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines — A plan to relocate informal settler families living beside Manila Bay will have to be finalized before the ISFs are moved out, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu said yesterday.

“There is a relocation plan that will identify who should go first or be transferred to possible relocation sites. We will forward this plan to the National Housing Authority (NHA) and the latter will take care of identifying these relocation sites,” he said.

The DENR said around 200,000 informal settlers living near Manila Bay would have to be relocated to settlements identified by the NHA in coordination with concerned local government units (LGUs). as part of the government’s efforts to rehabilitate the bay.

“The planning for the informal settlers’ relocation will… overlap with the cleanup of esteros and waterways, and the task of reducing the level of fecal coliform and toxic discharges from establishments,” Cimatu explained.

Meanwhile, Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año said one major issue that should be addressed is that relocated ISFs are displaced from work.

Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada yesterday aired his support for the DENR’s effort to rehabilitate Manila Bay.

“Full cooperation and assistance of the city will be extended to the national government in clearing the Baywalk of vendors and obstructions,” he said.

Integrated effort needed for Manila Bay cleanup – Roy Cimatu
Catherine Talavera (The Philippine Star) - January 18, 2019 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines — The rehabilitation of Manila Bay requires an integrated effort to clean esteros and rivers draining into the bay, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu said yesterday.

“All of these efforts for the cleanup are integrated. We plan to clean the Manila Bay, including all the esteros and rivers connected – the Pasig River and the Laguna Lake,” he said.

In line with this, Cimatu said all DENR offices in Metro Manila and the Calabarzon region, as well as its provincial offices in Pampanga and Bataan, will be involved in the rehabilitation efforts.

He also underscored the need to “clean the water source, so as to put an end to pollution.”

“We need to find out where the outfalls come from individually, because in just one estero we can find lots of outfalls,” Cimatu said, adding that “we have seen the problem closely this time, and we have already laid out a detailed solution.”

He said the DENR’s target is to bring down the coliform level in all esteros or waterways to 100 most probable number (MPN) per 100 milliliters (ml).

He earlier said coliform levels in Manila Bay’s waters have reached 350 million MPN fecal coliform bacteria per 100 ml. He compared this to Boracay’s waters where coliform levels reached about one million MPN per 100 ml at most, when President Duterte dubbed the island as a “cesspool.”

Cimatu also said that water concessionaires Maynilad and Manila Water, which cater to commercial and residential establishments in Metro Manila, will also undergo inspection.

“Reforestation of mangrove areas in the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area or LPPCHEA is also included in the rehabilitation plan,” he said.

The DENR will unveil the new Manila Bay rehabilitation plan on Jan. 27 as well as the list of establishments initially found to be non-compliant with effluent standards under the Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004.

SC to convene Manila Bay rehab body
Edu Punay (The Philippine Star) - January 21, 2019 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines — The Supreme Court (SC) is set to convene its committee tasked to monitor the implementation of its 2008 order to rehabilitate Manila Bay, an official said yesterday.

SC spokesman and court administrator Midas Marquez said the move is in line with the planned Manila Bay cleanup of the Duterte administration.

“The SC committee on the Manila Bay cleanup will convene in accordance with an earlier resolution to strengthen the resolve to clean up the bay,” Marquez, vice chairman of the committee, said.

The high court is expected to name a new panel head after its former chairman, Associate Justice Presbitero Velasco Jr., retired from the judiciary in August last year.

Velasco penned the SC writ of mandamus issued in 2008, ordering 13 government agencies led by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to clean up Manila Bay.

“The government’s rehabilitation plan is good news because it complements the continuing mandamus issued by the SC in 2008. The Manila Bay cleanup should be a concerted effort by all concerned agencies in the three branches of government,” Marquez said.

President Duterte has approved the seven-year plan of the DENR to rehabilitate Manila Bay.

He warned hotels along Roxas Boulevard that they would be shut down if they are found to be dumping waste in the bay.

The efforts to revive Manila Bay will cost the government around P47 billion, which the administration will reportedly get from road users’ tax upon abolition of the Road Board.

The Manila Bay cleanup will be launched at the Manila Yacht Club on Jan. 27.

Aside from the DENR, other agencies tasked to rehabilitate Manila Bay are the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority; the Departments of Education, Health, Agriculture, Public Works and Highways, and Budget and Management as well as the Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine National Police Maritime Group and Department of the Interior and Local Government.
