The project is a load port rehabilitation project of the old pier in Brgy. Bolitoc, Sta Cruz, Zambales. It covers the rehabilitation of Bolitoc Port to stockpile, barge, ship load mineral ore and other bulk material ore for export. Other EIA studies for nearby industries served as the main source for secondary data. Air quality and noise sampling were conducted, in addition to flora and fauna survey. A marine biota survey was also conducted and marine water samples were also taken at the proposed pier area. Environmental management plans including a monitoring plan and matrix of mitigation and environmental management strategies were prepared for the rehabilitation project. The ECC was acquired in August 2007.
