DPWH intensifies projects to protect landslide, flash flood-prone infrastructures

By Marivic A. Alcober

Tacloban City (Nov. 9) -- At the onset of the rainy season, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Regional Office No. 8 through its Regional Director Rolando Asis has instructed all District Engineers to intensify its monitoring on all major infrastructure projects in identified land slide/flash-prone areas.

According to Antonieta R. Lim, DPWH's Information Officer, to date several activities are already being intensified like the de-clogging of canals, and clearing of waterways so that during continues heavy rains the flow of water to the drainage will be fast and easy and will not cause flooding.

For the public to be aware, Ms. Lim added, warning signs have been installed in areas identified as landslide-prone. Likewise, to ensure that immediate response will be on hand when emergency occurs, Risk and Rescue Teams has been organized, she said.

It was also learned that a 24-hour assistance will be extended to the commuting public and other road users in times of emergencies.

Relative to this, cooperation of the general public is hereby requested by Regional Director Rolando Asis in keeping the environment most especially the canals and other waterways clean and free from debris in order to avoid flooding, and likewise to be vigilant of advisories for landslide prone areas.
