Floating and fixed cottage operators in Cordova town, Cebu have until October 4 to demolish their structures.

Governor Gwen Garcia issued on September 21, 2022 Executive Order No. (EO) 36 removing illegal structures, such as floating and fixed cottages within the coastal waters of the municipality.

Garcia directed government agencies such as the Philippine National Police, Philippine National Police Maritime Group, Philippine Coast Guard, Naval Forces Central, and the Maritime Industry Authority to strictly monitor and implement her order. (

She made the decision after discovering that some of Cordova’s floating cottage operators were illegally disposing of septic waste into the ocean.

SunStar Cebu revealed the practice in the first part of its special report on Cordova’s fixed and floating cottages, which was published on September 20, 2022.
