Dredging Part of Tullahan River Cleanup Project

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Monday formalized a joint commitment to undertake an extensive cleanup of the Tullahan River system, informs the Philippine News Agency.

Ramon S. Ang, SMC president and chief operating officer, and DENR secretary Roy Cimatu signed the landmark memorandum of agreement (MoA) that will implement a comprehensive dredging and cleanup of the 59.24-km tributary that starts from the La Mesa Reservoir and traverses the cities of Valenzuela and Malabon, before reaching the mouth of Manila Bay through Navotas City.

The cleanup of the Tullahan River, like other river systems going out to Manila Bay, is crucial to bringing back the glory of the Manila Bay,” said SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang.

Under the five-year agreement, San Miguel Corporation’s tasks include:

  • Implementation of a dredging and clean-up plan provided by the DENR to reduce solid wastes and floating debris.
  • To lend equipment, manpower, and funding for equipment operations such as fuel and logistics costs.
  • To assist in the community mobilization activities of the DENR.
  • To install a trash trap, transfer dredged materials, and install signage in relation to the rehabilitation program.
