DENR Putting White Sand By Banks Of Manila Bay
DENR – Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will transform Manila Bay into a white sand beach.
Manila Bay is known for its filthy waters and pollution. During the rainy season, the waves carry trash to the shore and transformed the beach into an ugly sight of debris and litter.
Last year, 5,000 people volunteered to clean Manila Bay. The operation was led by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). They are determined to put stop to the polluted waters.
DENR also cleaned the polluted waterway and fine the establishments nearby that contributed to the waste. After that, Manila bay transformed into a jaw-dropping sight.
Residents gather on the beach to marvel at the breathtaking sunset. Cleanup efforts really make difference and the bay has restored to its former glory. The government tasked teams to perform weekly cleanup on the area.
Based on a report from GMA News, DENR undersecretary Benny Antiporda said the department intends to fill the bay walk with white sand from the beaches of Cebu. “Gagawin white sand itong, ditto sa may baywalk area para makita ng tao na kapag puti ang kulay ng isang bagay, kailangan pangalagaan mo ito at wag mo dumihan,” he said.
Photos and videos of their project begun to circulate on social media. Trucks starts putting sand dunes and white sand along the shore. A Twitter user named Shyla Francisco shared a video of the site.
Francisco said DENR plans to transform it into a white sand beach for the residents who can’t afford to spend their summer vacation in Boracay or other tourist destinations in the country.
