That might make the tourists happy. Probably 100 times that amount of garbage on the bottom of the bay! I read in the Star yesterday that they shut off the water supply to the Aristocrat Restaurant because their sewage was going directly into the bay. Once they move the informal settlers away from the bay area they will need to deal with all of the people that live next to the rivers that feed into the bay to stop treating the rivers as garbage dumpsters. That will take some doing!:bonk:

I read online that theres a philipino guy who has been operating  a name and shame set up ,hes be getting groups of people to collect plastic waste and has been compiling a list of various company's products in order to apply pressure to have them change their packaging so that it is degradable 

He has ruffled their feathers enough fir them to invite him to New York for a behind closed doors talks on the problem

I hope it happens the way they want it to.  Back in the day, when I was Aussie navy, and we were in Subic, we dreaded diving there for hull maintenance for fear of illness etc.  I've been diving there in the last 5 years and it's actually great for WWII wrecks etc now.  Having said all that, it's a massive stretch for the same to occur in Manila Bay given what it's still used for.... Anyway, the locals need to understand what they've lost or losing for anything to be done.  I applauded when Dutarte closed Boracay to sort things out.  This isn't about economics, it's about sustainability and conservation.... They're not mutually exclusive, in fact one could say you can't have one without the other.  

Preserve the planet and not trash it.  Who woulda thunk it?

Just saw this on Yahoo.ph

After issuing cease and desist orders to private establishments over the absence of sewage and facilities, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is now turning its attention to government offices that are guilty of dumping waste materials into Manila Bay, said DENR Anti-Corruption Office Asec. Daniel Nicer.

The DENR will be looking at establishments surrounding Estero de San Antonio Abad which include Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Estero de San Antonio Abad directly drains into Manila Bay and has recorded 1.3 billion most probable number (MPN) per 100 milliliters of fecal coliform content. These are bacteria found in human and animal feces as well as in decomposing organic materials.

The DENR is currently studying what actions to take concerning government establishments that violate regulations on the proper disposal of waste water. — Grace Casin
