The Philippines: Another Step Forward for Agusan River Dredging Plan

The much talked-about plans of performing a dredging activity in the Agusan River may possibly push through after all members of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau arrived in Butuan City to conduct necessary preparations.

This information was personally disclosed by the City Mayor Ferdinand M. Amante, Jr. in his speech during the groundbreaking and capsule laying ceremony for the construction of two multi-purpose halls in Brgy. Mahay, on April 28.

The group, an affiliate of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, is now in its second phase of scooping to prepare the Agusan River for huge projects including the possibility of dredging.

The whole concept of dredging began when Mayor Amante, Vice Mayor Angelo S. Calo and Cong. Lawrence Lemuel H. Fortun explored possible solutions to the long-existing problem of flooding in Butuan.
