Creek Improvement Project

Thursday, January 2, 2014

The rehabilitation of slope protection along Mahabang Ilog Creek in Brgy. Maybunga, Pasig City is one of the three (3) major Flood Control projects funded by DPWH-NCR thru the First Metro Manila Engineering District (FMMED), aimed to mitigate if not totally eradicate the flooding woes of the low lying residential communities of Brgy. Maybunga and the adjacent Barangays of Rosario and San Miguel. These three (3) Barangays of Pasig City were the most affected by flooding during the onslaught of Typhoon “Habagat” when the water overflows thru the damaged riprap slope protection of Mahabang Ilog Creek, submerging the said low lying communities into knee deep flood water. With the rehabilitation of the damaged riprap sections of the creek and the clearing/desilting of its waterways, the flooding woes of the residents of the said low lying communities of the above-mentioned Barangays will be lessened especially during Rainy season.
