Government Introduces Dredging Plan for Subic

The Aquino government, through the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), introduced a plan to hire a private company to dredge the rivers in Subic, Zambales in an attempt to alleviate the worsening flood situation.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte assured during the regular press briefing in Malacanang that the DPWH is now addressing the concerns of the Subic communities that were hit by Super Typhoon Odette.

The monsoon rains, enhanced by Odette (international name Usagi), poured incessantly over the weekend, swelling rivers, causing flooding and triggered landslides in Subic and other areas in Zambales.
