The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is set to push its Sewerage and Septage Management Program to ensure that water bodies are safe from land-based waste sources. According to the government agency, this is their answer to Republic Act 9275 of the Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004.

The program is just one of the many initiatives of the agency that caters to the integrated framework for quality management. Apart from responding to issues on the safety of water bodies, the program also seeks to address various national issues on sanitation and treatment as well as disposal of waste water.

The program will call the attention of institutions whose septic tanks do not conform to the prescribed standards of the Department of Health.


Road repairs continue to affect traffic

The traffic situation in Iloilo City is yet to normalize due to massive road constructions on major highways. The construction along Luna St., La Paz is still ongoing, while the volume of commuters continues to be heavy, causing more traffic congestion. Adding to the said volume are students, since the area is where most educational institutions are situated.

Delgado St. in the city proper is also under repair. The delay caused by heavy rains and flash floods affect the routines of most commuters.

Travelers who would want to go to La Paz, City Proper and Mandurriao districts must add some leeway into their travel time for them to reach their destinations on the dot.

Weather still not the best time for sightseeing

This week might not be the best time for tourists to go sightseeing. Instead, they can enjoy indoor activities in the city and the province. Tourists who want to cross Iloilo and Guimaras Island might want to avoid doing so on September 4, 9 and 10. September 5 or 7 are the safest days to travel by sea though stray thunderstorms may still occur.
