Centralized septic tank facility in Boracay aimed
Sitio Ambulong in Boracay, led by Barangay Captain Chona Gabay, is now planning to work with Boracay Water, a subsidiary of Manila Water, for the construction of a centralized septic tank facility for the community, which aims to prevent used water runoff from flowing to the streets or contaminating groundwater sources.
If ever, this will be part of Boracay Water’s Amot Amot Para sa Malimpyong Boracay (Toka Toka Para Sa Malinis na Boracay), an advocacy on proper management of wastewater in every household or establishment as an important share in sustaining the pristine waters and beaches of the Island of Boracay.
Boracay Water brought Amot Amot to Sitio Ambulong in Barangay Manocmanoc to urge collaboration with its community members.
Boracay Water is a company formed through a 25-year concession agreement between Manila Water Philippine Ventures and the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) in 2009.
The partnership has remained steadfast in its efforts to protect and sustain the Island, by delivering the water and used water requirements of the three barangays of Manocmanoc, Balabag, and Yapak.
The company’s used water facilities ensure that used water coming from homes and commercial establishments collected via the sewer system or the company’s septic tank desludging services undergoes a rigorous treatment process.
