The River Rehabilitation Program was launched in 1996 and placed under the Community Development Division for implementation. It utilizes an integrated approach to watershed management. It takes into account both water quality and quantity in the continuum of an inter-related eco-system — from the rivers’ headwaters to the downstream areas of thriving urbanization all the way to the lake basin.
Twenty-four (24) sub-basins comprise the Laguna de Bay Sub-basin. These are used as basic units for planning and implementation of the following river rehabilitation strategies such as strengthening of River Councils and partnership with the Federation of Riverbasin Council (FRBC).
In the year of 2014, various physical river and Lake clean-up activities were conducted.
