I am living in Europe and I am in Olongapo frequently. I would like to know if anything happened since the first message about this was coming up here? Did the police come there or did any other authority do something about it?

Subicwater discharges raw sewage from the Central Business District into the Bay from an outfall located on the bottom of the Bay, eighty feet under the surface, directly offshore from the Chamber office.

The Water Regulatory Board has postponed its hearings on Subicwater's latest rate increase. When those hearings are finally held, the community should show up en masse to demand that any water rate increase be conditioned on Subicwater building a sewage treatment plant to treat the raw sewage it is now dumping into the Bay.

I'm not surprised. The investors might have known that SUBICWATER & SEWERAGE CO. INC. was the major sewage dumper in Subic Bay. "If they can do it, so we can."

Subicwater is obliged to invest and construct a main central sewerage treatment plant in SBMA to eliminate sewage outfalls to Subic Bay and it's been 11 years of their operations and nothing had happen.

I wonder if Senator Pia Cayetano who just joined the Asia Triathlon competition knew if the swimming venue is safe for swimmers?

I am writing from a hotel on the Barretto beachfront. Last Sunday I took a brief swim in the bay and within 24 hours I had a severe sinus infection. No proof that it came from the sea but I can't think of how else I could have got it.
It seems the hotels are not to blame. I am told that all hotels on the beachfront have septic systems which must be emptied regularly. In fact I am advised that the only people who can discharge untreated waste into the sea are Subicwater. Last Monday we watched a dirty browm stain spreading along the waterfront, presumably from the outfall. I wonder what else was in it apart from soil !!

If i may to our friendly visitors/tourists bloggers, you can write Subicwater & Subic Bay Water Regulatory Board (SBWRB) and ask about the truth of sewage outfall in waterfront area. You can see their sewage lift station 4 structure 510 waterfront road Central Area in front of Legenda Hotel and just beside the Casino.

Last July I have seen it under on-going improvement project. Improving their sewage dumping to Subic Bay to cater the increasing sewage in SBMA central area.

Why is Subicwater still allowed to continue this kind of operations? What is Subic Bay Water Regulatory Board (SBWRB) doing about it?

Your guess is as good as mine....

Maybe your voice can be heard and make the difference & we'll be very grateful.
