In line with the awareness campaign for the Manila Bay Clean Up, Rehabilitation and Preservation Project, Monitoring and Evaluation Division OIC Chief Lerrie S. Hernandez was interviewed in the two major shows of CLTV 36 , Focus with Jun Lutero and Hamon Central Luzon with Tonette Orejas on October 14 and 15, 2011, respectively.
In both programs, Ms. Hernandez was able to impart to the viewers what is the project all about and the reasons why Supreme Court ordered the ten Mandamus agencies to clean, rehabilitate and preserve Manila Bay. The roles of the LGUs within the Manila Bay Area were also discussed as well as the need for their participation in the massive cleaning of the major and minor river system, waterways, esteros and creek that eventually drain their water into the Manila Bay.
Even the crucial roles of the residents living beside the said river systems and waterways were also laid down for them to understand not only the danger it may cause to their lives and properties but the negative impact of environmental degradation in general.
In the said TV guestings, Ms. Hernandez urged the public to campaign and take part in the implementation of the Manila Bay Clean Up, Rehabilitation and Preservation Project in their own little way.
