EMB calls on Kalinga residents to protect rivers

TABUK, Kalinga (28 April) -- Kalinga Environment Management Specialist Engr. Ricardo Dang-iw is calling on settlers living along rivers to keep these water bodies clean and guard them against those irresponsible individuals and groups dumping garbage and toxic waste on flowing streams.

This came following the recent classification Lower Chico River as B. According to Dang-iw, Class B river belongs to the recreation water class which is for primary contact recreation such as bathing, swimming, skin diving (particularly those designated for tourism purposes).

The Tanudan river is classified as A, which can be source of water supply after complete treatment (coagulation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection) in order to meet the national standard for drinking water.

Dang-iw said all mining companies intending to operate mines in the province and whose company adversely affect the Chico river and other water bodies has to maintain the classification standard.

Pursuant to DENR Administrative Order No. 34, all industrial establishments, business, commercial and agricultural firms, political subdivisions, government-owned or controlled corporations and other similar entities and instrumentalities, including persons discharging liquid wastes into said water bodies are required to observe and comply with the classification and are given five years within which to phase their compliance with the standard.

The Chico Comprehensive Development Plan is being prepared by a technical working group headed by DENR Kalinga to plan out how to maximize the utilization of the Chico river for economic, tourism usage and as source of marine products. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
