Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong called on big businessmen in the Summer Capital to build their own sewerage treatment plants (STP) and waste water treatment plants (WWTP).
The Baguio politiko said he wants to reduce the volume of waste and pollutants being processed by the city government’s own STP.
The Baguio STP is already operating beyond its carrying capacity.
The city’s STP only has a carrying capacity of 8,400 cubic meters of waste water daily.
It currently treats 12,600 cubic meters of waste water daily.
Magalong said he wants to rehabilitate the city’s STP soon.
