DENR conducts environment assessment in Dapa, Siargao Is.

BUTUAN CITY – The “Task Force Siargao” of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Caraga region in coordination with its Environmental Management Bureau is ready to undertake its second wave of evaluation and assessment of environmental practices  in the tourist island of Siargao in Surigao del Norte. The task force which will involve 9 teams, will focus its operation in Dapa which is considered a commercial center.

          This was made certain during a meeting by Regional Executive Director Atty. Felix S. Alicer with the core group of the Task Force Siargao held at the DENR 13 Regional Training Center here on January 9, 2019. RED Alicer was assisted by the Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Samuel C. Danganan.

          RED Alicer said the task force will look into the compliance of establishments on environmental laws particularly PD 1586 known as Environmental Impact Statement System and other environmental management related measures, discharge permit under RA 9275, and other related environmental laws, rules and regulations.

          The Task Force Siargao holds its operation center at the PASu office in Dapa, Siargao Island.

          On March last year, the Task Force conducted assessment of 1,298 tourist establishment and homestay in General Luna, and found at least 391 establishments have violations on environment laws, rules and regulations. General Luna is famous for International Surfing and Game fishing competition.

          RED Alicer said these erring establishments were asked through a letter to comply with the regulations particularly on the 25-meter easement regulations. He said that he is interested on the number of the erring establishments and homestays that complied with the order to voluntarily dismantle structures that were found to have been constructed within the easement.### (By Herzon F.
