All Tagbilaran Wastes are dumped in Tagbilaran Bay?

Until the city council comes out with an ordinance making it illegal for the residents to dump their wastewater into the city storm drainage, then the P28-million storm drain becomes a useless infrastructure.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) District Engineer Celestino Adlaon said their problem now is how to unplug the 29 connections that tap into the multi-million drainage facility that was initially designed as a rainwater run-off conduit emptying into Tagbilaran Bay.

Engr. Adlaon hinted that unless the “illegal” connections are unplugged, the project is a “no go”.
Unplugging the illegal connections now become a legal question as reports have surfaced that project consultants accordingly agreed to give the green light for the taps.

Legal minds say that the contract becomes void if the drains would accommodate household and even industrial wastes, as it was initially set only as rainwater conduit to the sea.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has accordingly issued a Certificate of Non-Coverage (CNC) to the project as designed since it would only be a rainwater run-off conduit.

However, with the illegal taps which would empty household wastewater into the drains, then, an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) would be due instead, environmental observers have commented.

Moreover, if the drain also accommodates not just wastewater, experts said there needs to be put up a waste treatment facility so water spilled out and emptied into Tagbilaran Bay is clean water.

This late, the drainage has to have a completed out pool, which has been started from corner CPG Avenue San Jose Street of Cogon district down to the Shell depot.

The district engineer also reported about P3M worth of projects yet to be implemented to complete the drain’s outpool project before the drains can be reported complete.

The remaining projects, which would entail excavations and setting up of reinforced box culverts has been re-bid for failure of the contractors to pass the technical screening.

A failure of bid has been declared and the election ban on government infrastructure project implementation has also caused the delay, according to Adlaon.

If the city fails to come up with the ordinance, people may see another useless government infrastructure caught up in the snag of planning miscue and the influence of the city’s rich and prominent.

With the onset of the rains and the dengue threat, several city residents have complained over stagnant and un-drained rainwater in several areas along the city’s thoroughfares. (rachiu/PIA)

Kingahanglan atong ipaagi ang tanang waste water into a treatment facility, which is an essential part of a clean city. This is a wake-up call to our leaders... we are developing Bohol as a tourist hub. We must make our city clean to host our visitors. The more tourist we have, more business will benefit.  Ultimately, we the Boholanos benefit.

This facility is an investment and we must show to tourists that Bohol is diffrent from other filthy cities in the Philippines.

Also these treated water might be stored and used for irrigation during drought season....
There is no death, there is the Force

There are things that meant more than what you say...they are things that you do...

How much will it cost to construct a no-nonsense waste water treatment facility that can really treat the volume of wastewater generated by Tagbilaran?

Environment may be in the top list of Tagbilaran's agenda but does the city have funds for this WWTF?

Ah, I know... the city should scrap future expenses for sponsoring boxing events and other activities which are only intended to "delight" the people so that the funds can be used for the WWTF.
This smacks of a grand conspiracy to hide the non-existent, to identify the nameless, to paint a picture of the unseen. -- Benelynne

If you calculate the amount of damage caused by throwing waste water, it would be more than the expense you will spend for building a treatment facility. A treatment facility is just a very simple structure. It is composed of an open tank with aerators below it like used in Alabang. The theory of aerating the water is aerobic bacteria (bacteria that lives in air) will kill anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that lives in water). Then it will be filtered by sand filter in another tank to remove solid waste which can be utelized as fertelizers in our farms. It is as simple as that.

Not to mention the benefits from flocks of tourist that will appreciate a clean city....
