Mayor Radaza vows probe into Mactan water contamination
Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza on April 13 said she will order a probe into the casue of the island’s seawater contamination with fecal coliform.
Fecal coliform is a type of bacteria often found in animal and human feces.
The Cebu politiko said informal settlers on Mactan’s shoreline might have discharged their wastes into the sea.
“As you all know, daghan man mi’g informal settlers. I don’t know if this is one of the factors kay mao na’y among gitan-aw karon. The reason why I go from one informal settlers area kay pag-review for demolition,” Radaza said.
“We’ll get into the bottom of this ngano naa’y fecal coliform during the examination,” she added.
