The provincial office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Antique has donated some 650 board feet of confiscated lumber to repair the dilapidated running boards of Inabasan bridge in San Jose, Antique.

The DENR made the donation to add to the community’s lumber stock, which they have harvested from their own planted trees. Antique DENR–PENR Officer Andres T. Untal said however that the community lumber products were not enough to cover the wood requirements for the bridge’s running boards, prompting the DENR’s field office to provide additional lumber sourced from the confiscations of CENRO Belison.

DENR 6 Regional Executive Director Jim O Sampulna lauded the effort of the field offices in responding to the people’s cry for help.

Inabasan Bridge connects Barangay Inabasan to the town proper of San Jose, and the towns of Sibalom and Hamtic. ###
