The machines came from the national office of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Fernandez stressed that the crews of the dredging machines are still preparing the equipment that they will need for the dredging project.

She also pointed out that the Watermaster III, the most modern dredging machine of the DPWH, is still being assembled after being transported to the city by trucks.
