DPWH completes flood control structure along Cagnipa River

Cagnipa River flood control structure

July 30, 2020

CALBAYOG CITY The Department of Public Works and Highways has completed another flood control structure along Cagnipa River in Brgy. Cagnipa, this city. It covers a 45-meter section of the river bank near the coast.

The flood mitigation structure primarily serves to protect the lives and properties located in the immediate vicinity of the river. Secondarily, it prevents erosion of the river bank that may undermine the structural integrity of the adjacent Cagnipa Bridge. Said bridge is part of the national road (Daang Maharlika) network.

The project was allocated P6.1 million from the General Appropriations Act (GAA) 2019.
