MANILA, Philippines — The Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) has given assurance that it is on track to meet its target for the full rehabilitation of Boracay by May 2021.

In its yearend report, the BIATF said the number of structures found violating easement rules is now down to 342 from a total of 1,569.

Boracay inter-agency rehabilitation management group general manager Natividad Bernardino also cited compliance of hotels and other commercial establishments on the island resort.

Bernardino said the average coliform level on the main beach is now down to 10 most probable number per 100 milliliters, which is suitable for seawater recreational activities like swimming and skin diving.

The BIATF has also completed the first and second phases of circumferential road improvements covering up to 8.75 kilometers of paved and widened roads.

The relocation of some 113 illegal structures in Wetland 6 had been completed.

The 31 Tumandok families who previously occupied the wetland have been transferred to parcels of land covered by certificates of land ownership award issued by the Department of Agrarian Reform under the comprehensive agrarian reform program.
