The San Carlos City government is calling on the San Carlos Bioenergy Inc. to put a stop to the water and air pollution it is causing, and on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to act on the matter, Mayor Gerardo Valmayor Jr. said yesterday.
Valmayor said he has written to SCBI to act on the matter and met with its representatives Thursday night for an explanation on measures they are tasking to address the problem.
On Wednesday, the San Carlos Sangguniang Panlungsod also passed a resolution seeking DENR action on the pollution, he added.
