Even before the outfall of the cityâ€™s drainage system can be completed, the lot owner of the controversial project has vowed to close it down if the city government will not disconnect sewer connections coming from households and business establishments.
The statement was made by former OIC Gov. Victor dela Serna, who owns the lot where the drainage outfall tunnel is dug.
This even as City Mayor Dan Lim declared a wastewater treatment plant will be built in the area.
As recommended by the cityâ€™s environmental consultant, Engr. Cecil Corloncito, an equalization pond will also be constructed while the multi-million water treatment facility is still to be set up.
Corloncito, an international consultant on environment, with clients in the Middle East and Australia, said the water treatment facility can be built in 9 months if the bidding process can be completed in the next three months.
