High fecal content in water at beaches- not surprising to former Tourism Minister

Former Tourism Minister Stephen Cadiz

Former Minister of Tourism Steven Cadiz says that he was not surprised with the recent findings of the IMA report on the fecal composition of the water at local beaches.

Speaking with News Power Now today he revealed that when he held the post as minister of Tourism, while there was not an official report available on the quality of water at Maracas, there was general knowledge that the quality of the water was poor.

He said that the Waste Treatment System had been directly responsible for the poor quality of water at Maracas and there had been plans to treat with the System while refurbishing the Maracas Beach facility.
