Thursday, December 1, 2016

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) remains proactive in its bid to lessen the damages brought by perennial flooding in Iligan, Isabela through the implementation of the Baculud Flood Control Project.

A flood control structure comprised of bored piles and sheet piles was constructed with reinforced rubble concrete and a cemented pavement with line canal to prevent the inflow of water and reduce the risk of flooding especially during rainy season.

According to Regional Director Melanio C. Briosos, DPWH is keen in its thrust of ensuring that its projects cater to the needs of the public.

The ₱184 million project will address the life-long clamor of the people who are at risk during the onslaught of natural calamities within the province.

Expected to be completed early next year, the project is seen to mitigate the adverse effects of perennial flooding and safeguard the safety of the people who live nearby.
