Dredging Operation Results in UXO Discovery
Manila, Philippines A dredging company working in the Pasig River near the Guadalupe Bridge discovered two unexploded projectiles. The dredging crew immediately ceased operations and called the Philippine Coast Guard for support who in turn dispatched its Special Operations Group-Explosive Ordnance Division (SOG-EOD) to respond. EOD identified the UXO as WWII era projectiles 76mm and 105mm (one each). EOD transferred the projectiles in an inflatable boat to the Coast Guard Base Farola in Manila City for proper disposal. A notice to mariners was then issued to vessels traveling along the Pasig River which connects Laguna de Bay to Manila Bay to take precaution due to potential for UXO in the area.
