PIA Press Release

Flood control project contractors asked to put up safety signages

by ES Subong

Iloilo City (21 September) -- Iloilo Flood Control Project Manager for Component II, Mr. Ito, Keigo told project contractors to put up necessary signboards to warn people against the possible dangers of approaching the vicinity of floodway construction along Bgy. Buhang in Jaro.

Mr. Keigo also asked the people during the launching of the Flood Control Wall News in the barangay, not to steal or destroy the signages as it is for their safety, meantime that the constructions have stopped because of the onset of heavy intermittent rains.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) had also warned the residents not to go near the excavated portions as these are very dangerous when flooded.

In the forum that followed the launching of the Wall News, Mr. Keigo echoed what Bgy. Captain Fernando Junsan said that the wall news is a sign of open communication and regular exchange of ideas among the residents.

The local officials also told the people to defend themselves against illnesses that are common during the rainy season and which can be brought about by the excavations made for the floodway.

The Flood Control Wall News is the third to be launched by the project affected barangays, through the efforts of the Information Management Group composed of the DPWH, the Philippine Information Agency, DENR, and the LGUs concerned.

The Iloilo Flood Control Project is among the major Infrastructure thrusts of the Arroyo administration with the DPWH as lead implementor, together with the CTI Engineering International Co., LTD., in association with Woodfields Consultants, Inc. and the Pertconsult International. (PIA 6) [top]
