Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan has created an inter-agency task force to monitor and inspect backyard piggeries in the Summer Capital.
The piggery task force was created in response to rise in backyard piggeries in Baguio City.
The piggeries have been the subject of complaints from affected residents.
Domogan said that while he is not against piggeries, he stressed that piggery owners must comply with environmental and health standards.
The Environmental Management Bureau-Cordillera (EMB-CAR) earlier said backyard piggeries are major pollutants of the various tributaries in the city.
