The Philippines’ Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) – Surigao del Sur 1st District Engineering Office (1st DEO) has constructed a Consuelo seawall, located in Brgy, Consuelo, Surigao del Sur and aimed to provide protection to the people and properties in these areas.

The seawall which has a total length of 302.4 lineal meters will now prevent flooding, storm surge, and strong water current from causing destruction in the said barangay with more than 1,000 residents.

“With the community always facing the threat of flooding and possible tsunami, the seawall is a welcoming relief of protection for the residents,” said DPWH Caraga Regional Director Pol. M. Delos Santos.

The construction of the seawall, costing over $1.37 million, began in March 2018 and was completed on December 2019.
