Establishment owners from Station 1 Boracay now insisted sand bagging to protect their beach front property in the island.

Relatively, this is because of various chunk of sea wall that has been  buried in the long beach at Station 1 and come up due to sand erosion caused by Southwest Monsoon.

According to Nicky Villaruel of Blue Lily Hotel, the Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF) does not have a concrete plan yet in preparation for Habagat Season in the island.

Nevertheless, Villaruel admitted that it is prohibited to have a sand bagging but she insisted that it is needed in order to protect their properties.

“We are willing to be of assistance with the BRTF for the betterment of the island.” She added.

Meanwhile, it is noted that there are five establishments in Station 1 Boracay going to Boracay Rock (Grotto) area who make sand bagging even if it is proscribed by the BRTF.

However, Boracay Solid Waste Action Team (BSWAT) is now busy in their concentrated effort to clean the chunk of sea wall in the beach front.
