Welcome to the official website of DENR Central Luzon!

The realities of 21st century environmental governance require that fresh and up-to-date information about our environment and natural resources are readily available to the scrutinizing public, and that all avenues for dissemination are maximized to bring our services at the doorstep of our constituents.

At this time and age of space travel and information technology, the website is key in promoting transparency, accountability and meaningful partnership in DENR activities in Central Luzon.

We hope you find our website informative and user-friendly. A quick tour on the menu bar will guide you on the services we offer. Downloadable forms from the DENR technical services are available, and so are the geo-hazard maps to help local governments and the ordinary Filipino deal with natural hazards in the face of the growing threats of global warming and climate change.

Relevant statistics and contact information are also found on our website, including links to other agencies and organizations. Spectacular landmarks and geological features on Central Luzon’s environment and natural resources, including unique flora and fauna, can also be found on the rotating carousel with the hope that this would stimulate public interest in their protection and conservation.

Latest news about our policy directions and priority programs and activities are posted regularly to keep everyone on the loop about how the DENR is measuring up to the challenge of protecting and conserving our resources, and how other societal sectors could share in the environmental responsibility and help.

DENR Region III is committed to do everything within its power to champion the cause of sustainable development and to protect the people’s right to a balanced ecosystem for the enjoyment of present and future generation of Filipinos.

River cleanup project to ease flooding in Bulacan

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here in partnership with the provincial government of Bulacan and the local government of Malolos City launched recently the Bulacan River System Cleanup Project in an effort to protect communities from flooding as the onset of southwest monsoon or “habagat” takes place and in support of the cleanup and rehabilitation of the historic Manila Bay.

Paquito Moreno, executive director of the DENR in Central Luzon, said the province-wide project will administer dredging activities in the major river systems and other tributaries in Bulacan.

"Dredging creeks is imperative to sustain the cleanup and rehabilitation efforts of Manila Bay. And through this, we can remove solid wastes at pinch point areas, and allow water to flow freely," he explained.

He said project will start in the 4.6-km Apulid creek in Longos village in Malolos where heavy siltation was observed.  

Apulid creek is one of the water tributaries in Malolos which is directly connected to the larger Sto. Niño River, a major river system that drains directly to Manila Bay.

The project will also reduce the risk of flooding in the province especially during habagat season since dredging allows the creeks and rivers to carry larger volume of water, Moreno added.
