DENR Presents Malandog River Rehabilitation Plan, Dredging Included

The rehabilitation of the historic Malandog River in Hamtic, Antique, is now a priority of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Western Visayas, the Philippine News Agency reports. 

DENR regional director, Jim Sampulna, yesterday presented the Malandog River Rehabilitation Plan before members of the local media.

He said that no less than Secretary Roy Cimatu “ordered to develop and improve the historic Malandog River.”

What is known is that Malandog River is a historic one. And we have to protect and conserve the river, not only because of historic reason, but because of its scenic view,” Sampulna said.

Initial steps were also undertaken to have a complete overview of how they will go about with the rehabilitation.

These included the conduct of assessment, profiling and characterization of the river, inventory of boats, informal settlers and structures along the banks and river channel, study and documentation in preparation for the dredging activity, among others.

The river is located in the boundary of the towns of San Jose de Buenavista and Hamtic.
