BRTF, on its 2nd Phase of sea wall demolition

Written by Bert Dalida

The sea wall demolition of the Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF) is now on its Phase 2.

On Thursday February 13, the BRTF laid down its plan on Beach Replenishment Program as an answer to the scouring or the washing out of sand going to the deep portion of the sea.

The event is in parallel to the BRTF demolition of structures put up by establishments and stakeholders in front of their property in the island.

The removal of the mentioned illegal structures is included in the implemented redevelopment program.
Meanwhile, by means of the Beach Replenishment Program, it was learned that sand will be vacuumed by a diver from the sea back to the area affected by scouring.

Based on the replenishment presentation of Life Guard Supervisor Mike Labatiao, sand will be brought back in a method similar to spraying of water in order to bring back to normal the contour of the beach in the island.

On the other hand, BRTF reiterated that the seawalls are the reasons why sand is washed out from the shore.
