 In our society today, there had been many issues and problems that we encounter each and everyday. It is not just our personal issues but what bothers us the most is the fact that our environment is being deteriorated as years go by. Some of our green mountains and hills are now denuded. Our river full of marine animals and plants are now getting darker and darker. Its becoming worse and worse everyday. Fortunately, there are government and non-government organizations that extend their hands and do something regarding our environmental issues.

Recently, business tycoons Lucio Tan and Ramon Ang volunteered to help in cleaning some of the rivers in Metro, Manila. According to the news of Abanta Tonite, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) confirmed in a news forum held in Kapihan, Manila last February 6 Tuesday that the two business tycoons will voluntarily clean rivers in the Metro to help on the Manila Bay rehabilitation.

According to DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu, Ang of San Miguel Corporation offered to clean the Tullahan River. While Lucio Tan confirmed that they will also help on the said project. Lucio Tan is the owner of the Philippine Airlines. DENR will be the one to chose a designated river for them to clean.

Tullahan river is 15 kilometres long, it actually starts in La Mesa Resevoir in Quezon, City up to Malabon and Valenzuela going to Manila Bay in Navotas City area. It is already polluted and it would be very impossible for the fish to live and reproduce there. Memorandum of agreement will be signed by DENR and Ramon Ang for the rehabilitation of the said river.

DENR also announce that after they put barricades on the Manila bay they will be putting up a sewage treatment plant (STP) near the Manila Yacht Club. It will be used to clean the polluted water of coming from the three drainage in Manila before it can go through the Manila Bay.

It will definitely be a big help for our river’s rehabilitation that some private sectors also volunteered to support and help the government’s project in cleaning our own rivers.
