Pump installation along Manila’s Estero is expedited by DPWH
In order to reduce flooding in the city during the rainy season, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is expediting the installation of new booster pumps in Manila’s Estero de San Miguel.
Director of DPWH for the National Capital Region (NCR), Loreta Malaluan, stated on Saturday that the PHP200 million booster pump project, which is currently in progress and is located along Mendiola Street, is divided into two phases.
Phase 1 of the project entails the installation of one booster pump together with all of its components. It is currently 70% finished and should be finished within the year.
On the other hand, Phase 2 is still in progress and entails the addition of a second booster pump and auxiliary machinery.
Once finished, each booster pump will have the capacity to release 1 cubic meter of floodwater per second, reducing Estero de San Miguel overflow and averting local floods.
The installation of booster pumps is being carried out throughout Metro Manila, together with different structural and non-structural measures, to reduce flooding of important highways during the rainy and typhoon season, according to DPWH Secretary Manuel Bonoan.
The country experiences wet weather from June to November.
Due to its location in the typhoon belt in the Pacific Ocean, the Philippines receives an average of 20 typhoons every year.***
