The beach nourishment project for the rehabilitation of Manila Bay was completed and made open to the public in September 2020. They called it “Manila Bay Sands” and used Dolomite as artificial white sand which raised public concerns. Although later on, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) addressed the matter in a post titled “The truth about Dolomite and the beach nourishment project for the rehabilitation of Manila Bay.”
Now, CNN Philippines posted an updated photo of the “Dolomite Beach” at Manila Bay. Apparently, it is now filled with water after typhoon Fabian and there were workers picking up garbage and other debris in the area. The storm has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) yesterday but the rest of the country should still expect cloudy skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms, according to PAGASA.
