Revetment completed at Brgy. Burabod, Sta. Margarita, Samar

Brgy. Burabod Revetment

CALBAYOG CITY A revetment is completed at Barangay Burabod in Sta. Margarita, Samar with a total allocation of P99 million under the 2018 Local Infrastructure Program.

Revetments are used for coastal erosion defense in areas where crashing waves may otherwise deplete the coastline and create infrastructure collapse. The revetment spans 650 meters along the Daang Maharlika Highway in Barangay Burabod that protects the road as well as passing motorists from rolling waves.

This structure is built with steel sheet pile and hand laid rock embankment with a height of three meters and designed like a curved wall to imitate the crashing waves because it will prevent the wave to overtop the wall and it also provides additional protection of the wall.

The built revetment is 40 meters away from the national road due to a tide embankment in progress.
