Currimao rejects proposed reclamation project it once endorsed

Jul 11, 2018 @ 18:00

The Currimao municipal government is now opposing the proposed reclamation project by Omnico Resources Inc. (ONRI).

ONRI has a private seaport between the boundaries of Currimao and Badoc.

The company is proposing to reclaim around 112 hectares in the area.

Currimao and the Ilocos Norte provincial government previously endorsed the project.

The municipal government has not yet issued a statement on the alleged reason for the reversal of its decision.

But rumors in the municipality said environmental concerns over ONRI’s use of furnace slags were cited as the possible reason for Currimao’s turnaround.
