Select project: Marilao-Meycauayan-Obando River Restoration

The Marilao-Meycauayan-Obando (MMO) river system, is one of the worst polluted water bodies in the world and feed directly into Manila Bay. The project will test, develop and showcase remediation technology systems to reduce contamination to the fishponds, as well as create a network infrastructure including Information, Education, and Communication strategies, policy interventions to spread the technology through the entire sector. Ultimately, the project will enable the local regulatory agencies to protect consumers while they work on stopping the pollution in river.
