Task force tackles results of Iponan River water samplings
THE Task Force CDO Sanitary Landfill of the City Council committee of the whole headed by Councilor Suzette Magtajas-Daba recently tackled the results of the joint monitoring and water sampling conducted at the Iponan River.
Weeks ago, the Solid Waste Management Team, CLENRO, and DENR-EMB-10 conducted water samplings at the different stations of the Iponan River particularly from the Boracan River, the mixing zone of Iponan, and Sanitary Landfill drainage, among others.
The results of the separate samplings altogether showed no contamination of the Iponan River.
Based on the results, the committee concluded that there is no leakage in the Sanitary Landfill.
For monitoring purposes, the CLENRO representative said they will conduct water samplings monthly to assure the people of their health’s safety. (EF)
