Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy A. Cimatu (center) praises Diana Espinosa (right), chair of Bgy. 649 Baseco Port Area in Manila for the transformation of BASECO Compound which he said used to be one of the dirtiest areas along Manila Bay into a cleaner and more peaceful place, and for the improved water quality in the lagoon (inset) thus making the “impossible dream become possible.” Cimatu also thanked Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chair Danilo D. Lim (left), ground commander of the DENR-National Capital Region Manila Bay rehabilitation, and Manila City Mayor Francisco Domagoso (not in photo) for their concerted efforts to clean the barangay.  The environment chief was at BASECO on December 22 for the mangrove planting activity in line with the ongoing rehabilitation of Manila Bay. ###
