Gov Pacalso expresses support for Itogon engineered sanitary landfill proposal

Dec 2, 2017 @ 10:37

Benguet Governor Cresencio Pacalso said the provincial government is supporting Itogon’s proposal to build an Engineered Sanitary Landfill in the municipality despite encountering problems with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

The proposed site for the ESL in Barangay Ampucao was earlier declared as a protected area by the DENR.

“We are trying, we are helping Barangay Ampucao in Itogon to come up with ESL but they are now encountering problems with requirements from other government agencies which is still on process,” the Benguet politiko said.

Pacalso said the Itogon municipal government will solely manage the ESL.

“It’s still on process because incidentally it is within a protected area but that is the only viable site that was found,” Pacalso added. #
