In Pampanga, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed two flood prevention projects.
In the town of Floridablanca, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has built two flood prevention projects.
The DPWH-Pampanga 2nd District Engineering Office completed the 124-linear meter revetment wall in the stretch of the Porac river in Barangay Valdez and the 347.52-linear meter slope protection project along Santol Creek in Barangay San Jose at a total cost of PHP48.8 million.
On Wednesday, District Engineer Gregorio Audea Jr. stated the DPWH is continuing to construct flood mitigation measures along the Porac River, one of the town’s main waterways.
“Since 2020, the Department of Public Works has been conducting initiatives to prevent flooding along with Floridablanca’s key river systems by constructing flood control structures deemed crucial for homeowners,” Audea said in a statement.
Another leg connecting these structures is being built, he said and should be finished by the fourth quarter of this year.
The settlements of Valdez and San Jose are among those in Floridablanca that are frequently flooded during the rainy season.
