DPWH Completes Dungcaan River Improvement Scheme

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the rehabilitation of a mega flood-control structure that is seen to boost agricultural productivity of Leyte farmers especially during rainy season.

Agricultural lands, particularly those from Baybay City, are now protected against flood damages, with the completion of the rehabilitation and improvement of Dungcaan River Basin Flood Control Structure.

Flood-mitigating measures composed of dredging activities and reconstruction of concrete wall were implemented for prevention of flood waters from entering the southern sub-stream in Poblacion of Baybay.

In addition, DPWH has also completed two flood-mitigation projects in Leyte namely:

  • the rehabilitation of flood control structures along Daguitan-Marabong River in Barangay Caridad in the town of Julita;
  • the Tabgas flood control structure along Tabgas River in the town of Albuera.

Leyte is surrounded by Camotes Sea and Leyte Gulf and usually visited by typhoons which make it more vulnerable to flood, affecting not only the agriculture industry but also the socio-economic activities and daily lives of its people.
