The seepage framework task will start continuously seven day stretch of May and is relied upon to be finished in July. 

In spite of the DENR notice to continue with the HRP usage, ALQC is banished from providing the pulled flotsam and jetsam to its sister organization, Apocemco, as element for bond creation.
