DENR to investigate possible oil spill in Manila Bay

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is investigating a possible oil spill in Manila Bay.

According to a report on "24 Oras Weekend" on Sunday, yellow stains can be seen in the water surrounding a yacht moored beside the sea wall of the Manila Yacht Club.

The DENR said the possible oil spill spread about 500 meters.

The DENR took samples of the water which were sent to the Environmental Management Bureau to determine if it was oil.

The water has yet to be cleaned by authorities. — Ma. Angelica Garcia/DVM, GMA News
