CARIGARA, Leyte –
The Department of Public Works and Highways Leyte Second District
Engineering Office is set to complete a flood mitigation structure
project this year to spare residents and properties from the dangers
The P48-million flood
control project measuring 312 meters is constructed to help decrease
water levels brought by the overflowing of Uyawan River and high sea
water level in Brgy. East and West Visoria, Carigara, Leyte.
The project also involves
repair of seawall structure measuring 660-meter length for the
intermittent section and 10-meter length of Arch Bridge.
“Once completed, this
project can accommodate high volume of water going through the area,
which is essential so we can help protect the lives of the residents
against the threat of flash floods during the rainy season,”
District Engineer Carlos Veloso said.
He added that the
structure will also help prevent soil erosion that may damage the
houses and other properties of the people living close to the area.
The project is funded
under the 2018 General Appropriations Act (GAA) for 2018.
