I had a chance roving around the vicinity of “Lake Tabok” in my beloved barangay–Tabok, Mandaue City this afternoon on board my mountain bike.
My gosh!!! The water is still there and it’s no longer waist-deep but it’s already more than 5-feet deep. I see people swimming in the deep but dirty water while others are still there going fishing.
The Department of Public Works and Highways through the office of Sixth District Representative Congresswoman Nerissa Soon-Ruiz has already started constructing the drainage that would serve as the gateway of the stagnant water of “Lake Tabok” to the Butuanon river.
The project saved the private developer of the nearby subdivisions that causes the water to reach such level from spending its own funds in constructing the needed facility from it’s property.
In the meantime… the people of Tabok, Mandaue City is kept on a wait-and-see attitude while the rest are enjoying fishing and swimming the 2-hectare body of water.
