DPWH ACTS ON FLOOD PROBLEMS IN NORTHERN MINDANAO

Top 

  Aiming to protect the highly urbanized Cotabato City and agricultural areas in North and South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat as the Department of Public Works and Highways speeds up the completion of the on going re-channelling of the Simuay River in Maguindanao. In a report, DPWH Region XII Director Sinaolan T. Macarambon said that the re-chanelling works in the Simuay River aims to protect properties especially the residential and agricultural communities in Central Mindanao. It was also found out that in 2008, because of typhoon ‘Frank’, the Simuay River is one of the main reasons for the swelling of Cotabato River Basin as water lilies and wood debris had clogged the main waterway causing massive floods. Towns such as Alamada, Kabacan, Midsayap, Pikit, Surallah and Sto. Niño in Cotabato lost approximately P20 million worth of infrastructure and agricultural properties in 2008 due to the overflowing of the said river. The on-going Segment 3 of the Simuay Flood Control Project involves the 2.5 kilometers, 20 meters bottom width with 3 meters deep river re-chanelling works. This P 45 Million worth river channelling project is funded by the DPWH Regular Infra Fund, implemented by the DPWH Cotabato-Agusan River Basin Development Project ManagementOffice (CARBDP). An estimated 9,000 families living near riverside will be spared from sudden floods once the re-channelling project is completed. To date the project is 50.15 percent complete and the target-scheduled date of completion is by March 2011.
