DPWH Introduces Plan to Alleviate Flooding in Southern Pampanga

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) targets to reduce the damage brought by perennial flooding in southern Pampanga through the implementation of the Integrated Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (IDRR-CCA) Measures in Low Lying Areas of Pampanga Bay Project.

A total of eight deteriorated sluice gates are set to be repaired and replaced near the right bank of the Pampanga River to regulate the stream of water and prevent the backflow of the rivers.

Dredging and embankment works will also be conducted at the river channel network in the Third River, including Eastern Branch, Caduang Tete and Sapang Maragul waterways to improve their drainage capacities and to minimize the occurrence of flood in the areas around the rivers.

The flood-control project, which is being undertaken by the DPWH Unified Project Management Office-Flood Control and Management Cluster (UPMO-FCMC), started its 17-month detailed engineering and pre-construction stage last March 2016.

When completed, the project will benefit the Kapampangans residing in the municipalities of Macabebe, Masantol, Minalin and Sto. Tomas.
