LOCAL OFFICIALS IN CEBU DEMAND PROBE ON DOLOMITE EXTRACTION FOR MANILA BAY

Provincial board member John Ismael Borgonia said that they want to know where the dolomite rocks have been extracted, and have asked the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) to investigate.

The local officials said that they are “alarmed” after revealing that the extraction of the rocks for the cleanup was done without any permission from the local government.

“We want to know if the one who supplied the dolomite has the necessary permit and where they secured it. Why they were able to ship the dolomite without us in the province or any LGU knowing it,” Borgonia said.

The overlaying of white sand made of refined dolomite rocks on the shore of Manila Bay in Roxas Boulevard has drawn flak from different environmental groups, saying that it is entirely for “aesthetic” purposes.

However, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Undersecretary Benny Antiporda said that the project had been studied thoroughly.
