'Nawawala iyan and the only way to do it is to replenish it until we can think of a good alternative,” President Rodrigo Duterte says.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 27) —The Manila Bay’s “white sand” will have to be continuously replenished until a good alternative is made available, President Rodrigo Duterte said on Monday.In his last State of the Nation Address, the President admitted that the ₱389 million nourishment project of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources is not a permanent fixture and will have to be filled up again from time to time as the crushed dolomite gets washed out.

“Nawawala minsan siya(It gets washed out) because of the waves so every now and then we still have to replenish because we cannot change the nature of our shores," he said."It is not a permanent fixture there.”“Nawawala iyan(It gets washed out) and the only way to do it is to replenish it until we can think of a good alternative of how we can process the whole thing back to its normalcy,” he added.

The controversial “white sand” beach was seen as a waste of taxpayer’s money by its critics, who pointed out that the DENR merely focused on aesthetics instead of the environmental concerns of Manila Bay. Read more: CNN Philippines »

Hindi ba pwedeng itigil muna hanggat may alternative? Pero sinabi niyang magtapon tayo ng pera hanggat may alternative 😠 Meanwhile yung magugutom sa parating na ECQ hahanapan pa ng pondong pang ayuda. DutertePalpak Punyetang pagiisip yan hahaha wag na sanang lagyan ng dolomite linisin nlang kapag may kalat ganun din naman nasan na mga utak nito? Wag nyung ginawagang bobo mga tao hindi kami tanga may common sense kami bwahahahha

Taina! Kagaguhan! Kung di angkop, di dapat gastuhan ng milyones yan. Ano yan bottomless pit ang expenses for dolomite? Kada bagyo at baha, replenish? Di ba't ang sobrang garapal. Di mo pera ginamit dyan oi. Balak na na an nya magsayang ng pera, mangungutang na naman sya tapos tayong mga taxpayers magbabayad. Walang kwentang presidente ang inutil na yan.

Worst project ever. Bigas na lang po pls at maraming makikinabang. This gives them the 'passive income' project. Everytime it is replenish they get millions and this du30 supporters still don't know they are being robbed. They are stuck in thinking that this HUGE project will beautify and benefit all, but the reality it isn't.

Yung mental health ko! How about giving the money to the poor instead of replenishing the dolomites. Tag-bagyo ngayon oy! Isip isip din!

Ipipilit talaga nila.. Not a good idea. All they need to do is to develop the area as a tourist destination and not a fake plastering art work. Look at other places in the world and see what is best for the nation not the pocket of politicians.

O, di ba, ang tanga lang. Accomplishment na nila yan ha. 🙄 SO MAGSASAYANG MUNA NG PERA, GANUN PO BA? HINDI BA DAPAT FEASIBILITY STUDY BAGO ILAGAY ANG PROYEKTO? AYAW KASI MANIWALA SA MGA EKSPERTO. Tigilin na nila ang kanilang kahibangan. Sayang ang pera ng Bayan..best and brightest pa raw ang meron sila. Mga utak biya talaga.

People behind this should be punished

Laging e.replenish? Hahaha... nagsasayang lng tayo ng pera ng wlang kakwentang bagay... What a waste of 400m of taxpayers money. Yung cost pa ng maintenance. Maganda nga sa mata pero kada bagyo replenish, linis ulit. Pratikal sana pinaggamitan ng pera. Milyon milyon ginastos inanod lang, wag ng tambakan ng Dolomite, Mas maganda taniman ng Bermuda at sementohin ang pathways

inamin na. baliktad sa mga defenders of the dolomites Waste of people's money 🤔 Pera mo ggmtin s pagpapakain ng dolomite sand s alon? Abort the project, and do not prolong the fuckin agony of solving this brouhaha, any and all reactive maintenance being done to band-aid this mighty shitty problem, brainchild by imbeciles.

Manila court recalls arrest order against Advincula, alias ‘Bikoy’A Manila metropolitan trial court (MeTC) recalled the arrest order it issued against Peter Joemel Advincula, alias “Bikoy,” for his failure to attend the arraignment on his perjury case last July 22.

SCPh_PIO The SC should make a clarification on their ruling & impart on DENR that they should be cleaning our waterways & bays and not damage more of our nature with the Dolomite mining being done in Cebu. Ang daming pera ni mang kanor, Okay lang sa kanya ipaanod sa dagat ang buwis na pinaghirapan ng taumbayan. BUWISet.

Continuous cash cow ng DPWH. Ang ruling ng SCPh_PIO is cleanup which the DPWH has not done & instead created the their own interpretation of the ruling to be able to come up with a plan to fill their pockets for the decades to come with kickback/SOP courtesy of dolomite Hays , pa ulit ulit nalng ba ?m

Napakahirap aminin na sangdamakmak na kapalpakan mga hirit nyo po? They probably didn't knew the effects of beach replenishment Gusto ko managot si du💩 at ang mga DENR officials balang araw sa mga desisyong walang kakwenta-kwenta! in short, kumikitang pang-kabuhayan na yan :D, jackpot ang supplier and contractor, cash cow

another cash cow of the corrupts annacollins52 what the actual fuck! hindsight is 20/20 ha. should have thought about it before implementing that stupid project. most stupid idea by equally stupid government.

So kasalanan nanaman ni duterte yan? Dapat isisi ng mga squaters ng maynila sa gobyerno yan? MacarioBonifac1 tuwing may sakuna ng pagbaha hindi lng mga kababayan nating stranded at apektado ng bagyo ang tinututukan ng gobyerno,kasama na yung walang kwentang proyekto,.nakikita ng lokal government ang tambak na basura sa manila bay pero yung basurang proyekto di pansin. MacarioBonifac1 Ang proyektong Basura lapitin din ng mga Basura,..buti pa ang basura kapag tinapon mo babalik sayo, yung perang itinapon mo sa walang kwentang proyekto Tanamo!!!

Never ending replenishments! Ang dami palang pera ng gobierno! DutertePalpak Jusmio, pinanindigan talaga niya ang dolomite! Ang yaman ng Pinas, nagtatapon ng pera sa inaanod lang?! Talino diba? Sabihin niyo puro reklamo eh ito na ata pinaka stupid na pwedeng maisip ng gobyerno. 💩🤡 The best alternative is to stop it. Lmao

Dumbest project. Hindi talaga pinasisipan ang long term management nito. DutertePalpak Gastos na namang malaki🙁 Consult some wise engineers to solve the problem of Dolomite Beach. akala ko ba wala ng pera ang Pilipinas pero marami pala pang replenish sa fake dolomite beach ng poon ng mga ddshits!

It should not have been even an option in the first place. Just like you. And your alternate could never be better. So just fade away and face justice for crimes you committed. Ibig bang sabihin ay magtapon tayong mga pilipino ng pera para sa dolomite repleishment? Hindi po necessity ang dolomite Mr. Duterte sa panahon ng pandemya....

Come on waste more of our taxes as we look for a more stupid alternative to Dolomite! DutertePalpak The alternative is planting mangroves. Scientists have already said it and again. But we need to do our part in ensuring that we minimize throwing our trash to the Manila Bay. Wow mas uunahin pa tlg to kesa s vaccine? Madaming lugar ang kulang ang vaccine tpos eto kelangan e replenish? Ay nko ano bng pag iisip yan? DutertePalpak

Lustay ulit another billions of peso.... election na kaya tiba tiba si usec... Kaya pala ganyan kasi nagmimina sila ng tax.. hahahah.. easy... di mahahabol at walang pananagutan. Duh until when eh goodbye kna next year? Sa susunod na DENROfficial pag-isipan niyo gagawin niyo sa Manila Bay wag maging tanga at gastador tulad ng nasa current admin. Sayang pera ng taumbayan sa Dolomite na yan

Anu yang dolomite na yan? Parang kape lang Unli refil?!? DutertePalpak

Good alternative way is regular clean up drive sa tubig ng manila bay at pabayaan kung hindi maputi buhanging nito. Sino ba may gusto ng white pulverised dolomite pretending to be white sand? Yikes! This is considered squandering millions of pesos from taxpayers! This project needs to be stopped immediately! DENROfficial

Ever heard of a break wall? Idiotic talaga, grabe Pera ng bayan yan. Ok lang sana kung pera nya.Dami mapapakinabangan na nangangailangan jan na kababayan. Wala tlaga kwenta 😐🙄😤 Pwede ba itigil niyo na ang kalokohan niyo na yan? Nagsasayang lang kayo ng pera! 😁😆😅🤣😂😜🤪😝🤑 Dolomite Duterte. Waste of taxpayers money..DuterteInutil DutertePalpak

Seems like a chance to funnel funds and have constant kickbacks.

Poota anong klaseng pagiisip yan? Di ba nito alam na pera ng bayan ang winawaldas dyan? Define stupidity.. tangina pwede namang itigil muna habang wala permanenteng solusyon..palibhasa hindi mo pera ginagastos. In other words: Wala talaga akong alam and pake. 👊💩 Always better than the decades old trash site.

Ha? Di ba pwedeng tigilan na lang paglalagay ng dolomite at linisin na lang? Maryosep naman! Palibhasa di galing sa sarili nyong bulsa ang perang ginagastos nyo sa palpak na proyektong yan. 🤬 Actually magandang move naman yang ginawa sa Manila Bay.. kasi beautification din naman yan – kung sana lang kasing linis tayo ng Japan na halos walang basura sa dalampasigan pag bumabagyo. Kaso ang puno't dulo ng lahat ng yan ay BASURA.. which is kasalanan nating lahat.

Sino ba kasing may bright idea na gawin yan? The best and the brightest talaga - sa pag-aksaya ng pera. Halalan2022 TrapoRinPala Project for kickback funding for Halalan2022

Tanga! E di sana hindi na lng ginawa😡 Ang laki siguro ng kita diyan. Dolomite is carcinogenic. Will gov be responsible for future cancer patients? STOOOPID Wala na dapat bayad yan dahil pagmamay ari naman ng estado yung buhangin na gagamitin sa Manila Bay beach nourishment. Bat kailangan kumita ng mga kontraktor? Pagawa mo yan sa army na wala namang ginagawa.

Does it mean nagsasayang talaga ng pera sa dolomite?
