Zero flood eyed in Kamanava flood control project and drainage system improvement

Manila (20 February) -- Floods in the cities of Kalookan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela will be a thing of the past once President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's priority project in the area is completed

The KAMANAVA Mega Flood Control Project was designed to improve flood control and drainage system in the 18.49 kilometers of flood-prone areas in the KAMANAVA area. It involves the raising of the seawall along the Tullahan and Maralla rivers, construction of floodgates on strategic areas and the construction of pumping stations, polder dikes and submersible-type navigation gates.

The 3.6-Billion pesos KAMANAVA flood control program was funded by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) is now 88% completed. Once fully operational, it is expected to drastically reduce if not totally eradicate flooding problem in the area.

Flooding is a perennial problem in KAMANAVA area, especially to those living in low-lying areas. Heavy rains compounded by high tides triggers flooding in the area which at a time reaches neck level in some areas.

Flood-induced problems such as water-borne diseases, disrupted transportation system and economic activities as well as loss of lives and properties in worst cases will be mitigated upon the completion of the project.

This is expected to significantly improve the living conditions of the people of KAMANAVA. (PIA-NCR) [top]
