Philippines: Pinatubo Mitigation Project Phase III on Track

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced Friday that the Pinatubo Hazard Urgent Mitigation Project Phase III (PHUMP III) is on track and will be completed this July.

The project covers the towns of Guagua, Sasmuan, and Lubao and the City of San Fernando and is now 86.7 percent complete,” said DPWH Regional Director Antonio Molano Jr.

Work on the PHUMP III commenced November 2007. It consists of dredging of major rivers, diversion of Porac-Guiman, diversion of Sapang Maragul, improvement of five creeks, raising of roads, and six bridges for the Guagua – Sasmuan – Lubao area as well as improvement of four creeks, cut-off channel, and construction and replacement of five bridges in the City of San Fernando area.

Through the project, inundation level will be reduced from almost two meters to less than a meter with duration expected to drop from 45 to just 10 days and area affected down to only less than 20 percent. This would benefit around 88,296 families,” Molano added.
