More than 2000 FU students, faculty and staff swamped the Banica River last Saturday, Sept. 18, to take part in the 24th International Coastal and Waterways Cleanup. Dr. Lilian Sumagaysay, dean of student affairs and concurrent dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said the Foundation team cleaned a one kilometer stretch of the Banica river starting from the overflow at barangay Angatan going upstream.{{more}}

“Many students actually waded in the water to remove all foreign debris from the river–from bamboo, nipa and plastic. We even got a mosquito net,” she said.

The garbage collected from the Banica River were turned over to personnel from the City Environment and Natural Resources Office for disposal.

The International Coastal and Waterways Cleanup is held every year.
