The Tullahan- Tinajeros River System spans 27 kilometers, from La Mesa Water Reservoir in Fairview, Quezon City, all the way to the mouth of Manila Bay at Centennial Park in Navotas City. It is one of the most polluted waterways in Metro Manila and a major tributary of Manila Bay.

San Miguel Corporation recently pledged assistance for the dredging and clean up of the river. Other private sector partners such as the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Vanson and Boysen Philippines have also pledged  continuingsupport to the rehabilitation of the creeks and tributaries of the Tullahan River.

To draw attention to the campaign, the DENR in partnership with selected  local government units and barangays will conduct a community mural painting in strategic locations in Quezon City, Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela, with paint donations from Boysen Philippines, and paint materials from NLEX, March Resources, Vanson, Innovative Packaging, and Amtes Corporation.

The mural painting will feature somedrawings made by AG Sano himself, a renowned mural artist and climate change advocate,  and volunteer artists from the group,  Art Attack.

Sano said that the mural paintings will remind and inspire the public on the importance of the rehabilitation efforts being conducted in various waterways in Metro Manila.

The aforecited simultaneous clean up of  the creeks and tributaries in the Tullahan-Tinajeros River System is a joint partnership of the DENR with other national government agencies such as the Department of Interior and Local Government with selected cities and barangays, Department of Public Works and Highways, Metro Manila Development Authority, the private sector, the schools and civil society organizations.###
