The Bohol Environment Management Office is now closely monitoring abandoned quarries, some of them formerly operated by the provincial government, due to environmental risk and hazard to safety of nearby residents.

Leonilo Lafuente, head of BEMO said his office is coordinating with the office of the Provincial Engineer to check on quarry sites that had been issued gratuitous permits as source of quarry materials for road projects.

Investigation on the incident in Candabong, Anda where two truck helpers were buried alive revealed that the side of an excavated quarry site that collapsed was an abandoned quarry of the provincial government.

The quarry which used to be operated by the province looks abandoned with very deep excavation and access road hard to pass through.

Two young children were also recently buried alive and found dead following a landslide of an old quarry in Maribojoc town while they were asleep on an old bunker house below.
