The Cebu City Government through the Cebu City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CCENRO) in collaboration with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) – Environmental Management Bureau (EMB)-7 organized a clean-up drive in the downstream of Bulacao River for a River Park near Inayawan Landfill recently.
Aside from the manual clean-up of the volunteers, the city used heavy equipment in desilting the wastes in the 500-meter river up to the river-mouth before developing it into a River Park.
A campaign will also be made in order to restrict individuals from throwing their wastes in the river.
A representative from the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Argao, Elizabeth Rivac asked the residents to do their part in keeping the rivers clean.
After the Inayawan River Park, CCENRO will again develop another area, this time; will be the Pasil River Park. (Margie P. Bulado/PIO)
