The concept of “Bayanihan” is very much alive in the hearts of DENR Officials. The spirit of Bayanihan practiced by barrio folks even before the Spanish regime has been revived with the convergence of DENR Offices to rehabilitate Manila Bay . After a series of synchronized clean up of Manila Bay, a meeting was called by Atty. Domingo M. Clemente, Jr., EMB-NCR Regional Director to the Officials of DENR-NCR, Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) and Pollution Adjudication Board (PAB) to discuss the Guidelines in the Imposition of Fines and Penalties pursuant to RA 9275 otherwise known as the “Philippine Clean Water Act,” along Manila Bay area.
Present during the meeting was the Assistant General Manager of LLDA, Mr. Generoso M. Dungo. Said convergence meeting on April 25, 2019 at the Conference Room of EMB-NCR was in relation to Earth Day celebrated yearly on the 22nd of April, with this year’s theme “Protect our Species.”
