Action on the drainage de clogging and the illegal connection to the drainage of Boracay will be started soon by the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Malay.
According to Malay Municipal Engineer Elizer Casidsid, a report related to the drainage de clogging project and illegal connection to the drainage had been submitted to their office by the contractor of Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA).
The report was supposedly necessary so the LGU of Malay can take the necessary action if ever there is an illegal connection to the said drainage.
A program of works had allegedly been made, however, action was not started because of the barring period implemented for the 2013 Midterm elections.
Meanwhile, Region VI Department of Tourism (DoT) Regional Director Atty. Helen Catalbas also said on Friday, June 14 that drainage problem is considered to be one of the reasons for the flooding in Boracay Island.
