Loren wants Antique rivers ‘useable for tourism’

0 260

Antique Rep. Loren Legarda is pushing to improve the water quality of rivers in the province.

“We want to make sure our rivers are clean and useable. Useable for tourism,” Legarda said.

She does not want a repeat of Boracay experience

Legarda, a former senator, said she was inspired by the efforts of Senator Franklin Drilon in the restoration of heritage structures and the development of the Iloilo River Esplanade.

The revival of the Iloilo River has inspired her to make an inventory of the waterways in Antique, according to her.
