Mining in the area has been threatening Tagoloan river. In 2013, a report, prepared by San Isidro College professor Fred Martinez, said that mud from chromite separator equipment used in large scale mining operations were flowing to the Dila Falls and then into Tagoloan River.

Former mayor Joy Okinlay denied that mining operations destroyed the Dila and the Tagoloan rivers, blaming instead agricultural companies for the damage.  Wiki

    Just how much do we know about trash traveling from the shores to the oceans?

    Have we thought of the little trash we throw in the waters that if lumped together could clog our waterways?

    One doesn't have to go far. Cagayan de Oro dwellers have been seeing and experiencing wading into waters during urban flooding that results from the less than an hour of torrential rains here in the city.

    With the unabated trash thrown all over world in small ways people can, some groups also have never ceased to do the opposite, picking up others' trash and ensuring trash goes to its proper disposal, ...
