The laborers asked DENR to permit the resumption of the organization's activities to keep the brief cutback of up to 30 percent of their representatives which will produce results on December 13. 

"We can't simply bring back the inhabitants and permit activity except if we have dispensed with the risk," said Gonzales alluding to the threats left by the executioner avalanche in Barangay Tinaan, Naga City which murdered 78 individuals and covered several homes last September. 

"We will simply be sitting tight for the last report of MGB (Mines and Geosciences Bureau)," he said.

At the avalanche hit region of Sitio Sindulan in Barangay Tinaan, Apo Land and Quarry Corp. (ALQC), the firm that works the vast majority of the quarry destinations in Naga City, was given the green light by DENR to continue with the execution of its danger decrease plan (HRP). 

On Thursday, Nov. 29, a Holy Mass pursued by the arrival of ten pigeons denoted the beginning of the HRP usage. 

The venture incorporates the development of the Sindulan Safety Wall, the clearing of Pangdan River way, and the development of a waste framework from Sitio Tagaytay to Sindulan Creek. 

The three activities, adding up to about P47 million, will take something like 177 working days to finish.

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. 

The pulled flotsam and jetsam will be put away in a region close to the concrete plant. 

Blanche Empleo, barangay secretary of Tinaan who went to the HRP exchanges addressed for what reason would the garbage be put away when it tends to be prepared to keep laborers of Apocemco from being totally laid off. 

MGB Mines Management Division Chief Raul Laput anyway said it isn't the privilege of the local office to permit Apocemco to process the material since it was their focal office who issued the notice to continue with the danger decrease plan and set the conditions.
