NegOr LGUs urged to establish
wastewater treatment facility
The Silliman University Biology Department encouraged all local government units in Negros Oriental to establish wastewater treatment facility to convert it into cleaner water for public health and economic development in the area.
This as some 40 Biology students of SU were tasked to conduct this year's water quality monitoring in the wastewater treatment facilities of Dumaguete City and Bayawan City, in partnership with American Space Resource Center of US Embassy based in Silliman, in observance of World Environment Day.
In a presentation of water analysis results of wastewater treatment facilities to US Embassy Public Affairs Officer Carolyn Glassman and National Scientist, Angel Alcala, Biology professor Robert Guino-o said the data is given to the two LGUs for its water management as well as policy implementation related to sanitation, a government press release said.
