PIA Press Release

DENR-EMB monitoring of Mt. Bulusan continues

Legazpi City (7 December) -- After series of ash explosions of Mt. Bulusan in Sorsogon, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Ramon Paje has instructed Bicol Regional Executive Director Joselin Marcus E. Fragada and Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) chief Fernando P. Quililan to dispatch a technical team and continue monitoring the state of the surrounding environment of the restive volcano.

Quililan said that the bureau has already dispatched a Quick Response Team to conduct a round the clock monitoring of the air and water quality in the affected areas in Irosin, Sorsogon.

He assured that any adverse changes in air and water quality will be coordinated and immediately relayed to the Local Government Units for their information and guidance in making appropriate decisions.

The team, headed by Air Quality management Section chief Mr. Romel R. Gapayao, is expected to assess the ambient air quality on total suspended particulates (TSP) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) to determine the levels of the specified air pollutants spewed into the air.

Likewise, water quality monitoring of the total suspended solids (TSS) is being conducted to determine the level of contamination in the possible affected bodies of water in the area. (EMB V/PIA/mal) [top]
