‘RIVERS FOR LIFE’ | DENR awards three cleanest rivers in PH
June 16, 2019 , 05:17 PM

JUNE 16, 2019 — The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) recognized the country’s cleanest rivers in its first ever R.I.V.E.Rs (Recognizing Individuals/Institutions Towards Vibrant and Enhanced Rivers) for Life Award.

Of the sixteen classified Class C rivers submitted as entries, Ifugao province’s Lamut River clinched the top prize.

Second prize was awarded to Calbayog River in Samar province while Bohol’s Manaba River finished third.

The awards were handed over to the winners during the DENR’s celebration of its 32nd anniversary.

“We aim to tap concerted action to protect the country’s rivers from degradation and
pollution and ensure their suitability, sustainability, and further improvement,” DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu said.

The DENR believes the R.I.V.E.Rs for Life Award will play a great part in ensuring that the country’s rivers are kept clean.

DENR Undersecretary for Field Operations and Supervising Undersecretary for the EMB Atty. Juan Miguel Cuna says the awards will be handed out annually.

“After we have awarded our very first batch of winners this year, I am sure our regional offices will work even harder to nominate their rivers to show how important our
rivers are to us,” said Cuna.
