Mayor Radaza to EMB-7: Why are you using different water quality standard?
Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza on April 13 questioned why the Environmental Management Bureau-7 was using a different standard in measuring water quality.
This after the EMB-7 said waters around Mactan was contaminated with fecal coliform.
The Cebu politiko said the Lapu-Lapu city government has been using different standard since her first term as mayor.
“Ang amo nganhi, the usual standard ana is 1,000. Kung moabot na gani na og 500 above, we immediately send a letter to the resort that they should do something kay mao na inyong kadagatan. Then two weeks after, we do examination again,” Radaza said.
“Di kaayo ko well-versed ani. Di kaayo na nako ma-explain. Since the time naglingkod ko as mayor, ang mga forms nga ako madawat (sa office), ang standard is 1,000. Magpaeksplikar gyud ta ana,” she added.
