The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has allocated around $800.000 for the rehabilitation and development of the historic Malandog River, the Philippine News Agency (PNA) said in their latest announcement. 

Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Andres Untal, who met the different heads of national and provincial offices in Antique on Wednesday, said that the money will be utilized for the dredging of the already silted river, removal of fish traps and debris, rehabilitation and improvement of riverbanks, and other activities.

The project is very timely because Malandog will be the core of the Binirayan Festival re-enactment,” said Errol Santillan, Sangguniang Panlalawigan chairman of the Committee on Tourism and Environment, who also attended the meeting.

Binirayan Festival re-enactment, to be staged on December 26, is the highlight of the month-long celebration, PNA said.

Santillan, who is also the chairman of the Binirayan Festival re-enactment, said that there is an urgent need for the dredging of the heavily silted river delta so the big boats or ‘balangay’ could dock at the riverside.
