CENRO Boracay, No comment on BRTF’s method on sea wall demolition

Written by Bert Dalida

“No comment”

This is Boracay CENRO or Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer Norman Dy Lebelo’s reaction for now, regarding the Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF)’s method on a sea wall demolition at the station 1 beach front yesterday.

During which, the demolition team has not transferred the bulldozed rocks and instead has buried them there.

This caused the public and tourists passing by the area to worry as iron rods were still attached on the rocks that were buried.

A question if this manner is “ok” with the CENRO has then followed.

Boracay Island Administrator Glenn Sacapaño however said that the process is even good for the white sands because the rocks will prevent it to be washed back to the water.

Meanwhile, based on Lebelo’s text message yesterday afternoon, he said he cannot comment on the matter since the DENR itself inspects the methods of the BRTF.

Island Administrator Sacapaño himself has led the demolition team in taking down the sea wall belonging to the Elizaldes in Boracay.
