Save Iloilo River


Despite its beauty, Iloilo River still remains the Philippines’ largest septic tank, next only to Pasig. The city has no liquid waste treatment facility. Buildings and residences along the river have no septic tank but directly empty their effluents into the river. There are at least 200 establishments to include, government buildings, hospitals, schools, restaurants and an abattoir that directly discharge their untreated wastes in the Iloilo River which is actually an arm of the sea, not a real river.
