Coastal Cleanup Program

posted Oct 14, 2014, 6:39 AM by Barangay Tortugas   [ updated Oct 14, 2014, 6:44 AM ]
This program of DENR is in compliance to the Supreme Court's mandamus of keeping the greater Manila Bay Coastline and our rivers/waterways clean and cleared at any given time so as water may flow well especially during calamities/disasters.

This is one program many appreciate because according to previous experiences, dwellings of informal settlers along our coast line area proved to be dangerous for the community as they prevented the proper flow of water during high tides creating flash floods to the detriment of many residents.

 Our Tanods and BPATs continue to support this maintenance clean up- clearing rubbish in the riverside. The Barangay also supports the prohibition of erecting any structure alongside the riverbanks.

Clean up dates:

a.  Jan 28, 2014

b.  April 2, 2014

c.  May 22, 2014

d.  Aug 26, 2014
