Vico Sotto ordered the closure of a meat processing plant in Barangay Bagong Ilog.
After inspecting the facility, Vico ordered to shut it down for not having a wastewater treatment plant which the law requires.
"Wala silang stp o anti-pollution device na kailangan sa batas. Sanhi ang mga ganitong kalakaran ng polusyon at baha."
There were complaints about how their wastewater goes straight to the street or the drainage of the city, mostly with pig's blood.
"Dumidiretso sa drainage/kalsada ng lungsod ang maduming tubig nila, madalas may kasama pang DUGO NG BABOY!!"

"Pinapahanap ko na rin ang empleyado ng CENRO na huling nag-inspect nito."
