City Mayor James ‘’Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. has intensified the campaign to protect the city’s visible and viable resources such as river banks and beaches.

‘’Isa sa ipinag-mamalaki ng Olongapo ay ang mga beaches partikular na ang Subic Bay. Maliban pa sa tourism value, napapakinabangan rin ito sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay ng livelihood sa mga mangingisda ng lungsod,’’ Mayor Gordon said.

According to Mayor Gordon the installation of and proper maintenance of septic tanks in households and business establishments are essential in protecting the city's resources.

‘’Pinapa-alalahanan ko ang mga homeowners, business owners, administrators at managers nito na mag-lagay at magpanatili ng septic tank,’’ according to the mayor.

‘’When septic systems are properly designed, constructed and maintained, they effectively reduce or eliminate most environmental and human health threats posed by pollutants from households and commercial waste-water,’’ he added.

Mayor Gordon has also instructed the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) through a Resolution passed by the City Council to conduct an inventory of septic tanks in all households and establishments along rivers and beaches in the city.

In compliance to Resolution No. 161, series of 2006, entitled, ‘’A Resolution urging all barangays concerned to support the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) in conducting an inventory and mapping of Septic Tanks in all establishments along rivers and tributaries of Olongapo as an initial step for the river rehabilitation plan of the city government,’’ the CPDO has already surveyed ten (10) barangays maintaining river banks and beaches. Three hundred fifty one (351) or 55.80% of the surveyed lots has septic tanks.

Also based on the said inventory, 74 or 11.765% of the lots surveyed are without septic tanks while 204 or 32.43% are for verification. The survey was conducted for the City Government’s river rehabilitation plan.
