Provincial govít moves to mitigate impact of floods

by Merlito G. Edale, Jr.

ILAGAN, Isabela, January 17 (PIA) -- The provincial government is ironing out possible solutions to mitigate the impact of floods in the province during the climate change summit held here recently.

Provincial Planning and Development officer Nestor O. Salvador said the provincial government has proposed projects on flood control along the Cagayan river area in the municipalities of Cauayan, Angadanan, Reina Mercedes, Ilagan, Naguilian, Tumauini, Cabagan; Magat river in San Mateo, Reina Mercedes, Gamu; Siffu river in Roxas, Aurora, San Manuel; Ganano river in Echague, Cordon, Santiago City; and Pinacanauan river at San Mariano.

He said these projects will be implemented as soon as the budgetary requirements will be available. Under the proposal, projects on flood control will need P2.350 billion from funding agencies and P235 million as counterpart fund from the provincial government.

"Dredging will be the top priority to be conducted at heavily silted river sections, creeks and other waterways particularly in Ilagan, Tumauini, San Pablo, Roxas, San Mariano, San Manuel, Angadanan, Reina Mercedes, Cauayan City, San Mariano, Cordon, Santiago City and Echague," Salvador presented.

A watershed development and riverside control and protection are also proposed. (TCB/MGE/PIA 2-Isabela)
