ILOILO CITY: The city council has requested the local government of Oton town in Iloilo and the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) to temporarily close Charlie’s Farm located in Barangay Pakiad until such time that the violations are rectified. The piggery was the subject of a complaint of three villages because of the noxious odor and severe air pollution emanating from the site. City councilor RLeone Gerochi, City Council committee on environment chairman, said a resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday. The EMB also reported that the farm was operating without an Environmental Compliance Certificate. Likewise, the piggery owner failed to renew its discharge permit.
