Camiguin to Mindanao and vice-versa has now very limited ferry service. On March 11, the local government of Camiguin decided that the so-called “Roro” vessels plying the Camiguin-Balingoan route would no longer be allowed to operate unless the owners could provide septic tanks in the vessels. Read here.
From March 23, 2013 only 3 ferries operate
Announcement to all passengers please be informed that starting today March 23, 2019 Only 3 vessels/ferries will do run from their permanent schedule for others are still complying for the requirement they need to have.. PPS (Prevention of Pollution from Sewage) because every vessel needs to have Sewage Tank. Further notice will be posted. (Source: FB Benoni Port Update)
And where does the content of the septic tanks go?
Sorry for this not so trivial question. I travel rather often from Camiguin to Mindanao and back. I’ve never seen a sewage pump or a sewage tank truck in neither of these ports. Maybe now they are there.
Where are the sewage treatment plants in Benoni and in Balingoan. I never have seen one neither on our island nor over in Mindanao. Such a plant should be visible on Google Earth. But even after hours I haven’t found one. Can somebody give me a hint?
