Malacañang on Friday clarified that the “white sand” that the government dumped along the shore of Manila Bay was “crushed dolomite boulders.”

Citing the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that the reported Manila Bay’s white sand makeover is “erroneous.”

“On the issue of the Manila Bay rehabilitation, per the DENR, the report that “white sand” is being used to fill the stretch of the baywalk is erroneous,” Roque said in a statement released to the media.

“DENR added ‘crushed dolomite boulders’ would be utilized for the aforesaid project,” he also said.

Roque added that the plan to fill a portion of the Manila Bay baywalk with crushed dolomite boulders “forms part of the cleaning up of the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Program with an allocated budget” and began even before the coronavirus pandemic hit.
