Last August 28, I blogged about this. Here's the excerpt:
Took photos of the actual sand quarrying in the Panayakpan Area and the "destroyed" lake shore left by this illegal and unregulated practice.
I have taken photos and shown these to Councilors Nonong Behagan (Environment and Tourism Committee Chair) and Roxie Salino (Peace and Order Committee Chair) who promised to take action via legislation. Fr. Rey (Catholich Church) and Pastor Casera (UCCP) also showed support in addressing the problem. Fr. Rey will make a homily on this.
This is just in front of where our Bangkal trees were planted. I feel so disgusted seeing parts of the lakeshore holed due to quarrying.
And the sand being transported. I was told that they can have several trips within one hour.
I think I will stand corrected on saying that this is "illegal". I was told the the quarries have official permits.
