Palawan Daily News - - Front Page - By Sev Borda III

The City Gov­ern­ment of Puerto Princesa of­fi­cially started the con­struc­tion of its san­i­ta­tion and waste­water treat­ment fa­cil­ity that costs around P240 mil­lion as the ground-break­ing cer­e­mony was held last Sun­day, Novem­ber 18.

A joint ven­ture agree­ment be­tween the City Gov­ern­ment and Ecosys­tem Tech­nolo­gies In­ter­na­tional Inc. (ESTII) was inked. The fa­cil­ity will process the waste­water of the city and will en­sure that it will not dis­pose of harm­ful and pol­luted residues to Puerto Princesa City Bay.

The treat­ment fa­cil­ity, which will be si­t­u­ated at Brgy. San Isidro, will treat dirty wa­ter from canals, sep­tic tanks

and other residues com­ing from the do­mes­tic and com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments in the city.

It is pro­jected that the con­struc­tion will be fully fin­ished within nine months.

The ground­break­ing cer­e­mony held last Novem­ber 18 was at­tended by the City Gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, ESTII Pres­i­dent Engr. Robert So and for­mer DENR Sec­re­tary Gina Lopez.
