Illegal drainage connections at Bolabog, to be cleared out Monday

Written by: Bert Dalida

The beauty of Bolabog beach may now be restored.

And the flooding and the difficulty it brings to the residents may also ebb out.

This is because, come Monday, there will be a clearing out of illegal connected drainages in the area.

According to Malay Municipal Engineer and Task Force Save Bolabog Chairman, Elizer Casidsid, the removal of the said drainages must be started to save Bolabog beach.

With this, the Task Force will conduct an inspection and removal of disposal lines that are not connected to the sewer system.

Based on the report obtained by the LGU, these illegal connections impede the flow of rain water into the drainage which in turn causes floods.

Consequently, it pollutes the Bolabog beach as the waste water from the establishments flows into the sea.

Thus, Casidsid calls out for the attention of structures and or establishments with illegal connections.

Meanwhile, the Task Force which is composed of the LGU-Malay, stakeholders and other agencies in Boracay, was formed to put an end to the mentioned problem in Sitio Bolabog.
