Study on Bued River pollution out
11 September 2020 – Effective garbage scheduling and collection; enforced guidelines and monitoring of construction, mining, piggeries, soil erosion and aggregates were among the recommendations of a school-based research team to lessen pollution in Bued River.
The referral of pollution-related studies to other river systems, and distancing of constructions from Bued River were also recommended as the study was presented to Mayor Benjamin Magalong, several councilors and department heads last Monday.
The 31-km Bued River which originates in Baguio and works its way to Pangasinan and portions of La Union province was the subject of an Environmental Management Bureau (EMB-CAR)-funded project as endorsed by the Regional Development Council (RDC).
Through Geographic Information System (GIS), the study shows that almost all small scale mining done near the headwaters do not utilize siltation ponds, thus toxic wastes are disposed directly to the river contributing greatly to water pollution. Almost all of waste disposal were done from bridges and hidden areas, while there were no observed or recommended 3 meter-buffered distance from the river for almost all surveyed residential areas.
The research team headed by Engineer Nathaniel Lubrica identified and collected data using GIS, with river quality policy formulation and river revitalization strengthening as objectives. – Julie G. Fianza
