The Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF) is pleased with the stakeholders’ positive response to the new design of sea walls in Boracay.
During a meeting at the Boracay Action Center Monday morning, the BRTF and other officials of LGU Malay thanked the stakeholders for their support.
Presented by Engr. Elizer Casidsid of the Municipal Engineering Office, the new design’s objective is to build the sea walls out of bamboo.
The bamboo sea wall will break the waves as it hits the shore and will prevent white sands to be carried off to the waters.
The suitable sea wall design in Boracay will serve as protection for the establishments at the beach front, and is expected to prevent the sands from eroding.
Earlier reports tapped into Boracay’s dilemma where water, sewer, and electrical pipelines at the beach line started to emerge due to beach erosion.
Meanwhile, the task force is furthermore pleased with the recognition and request of assistance from establishment owners.
