Dredge rivers, ease floods - Pacquiao
MetadataShow full item record
Sen. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao proposed the dredging of rivers and water tributaries in low-lying and catch-basin areas in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga and Pangasinan to ease flooding. The chairman of the Senate public works committee said aside from constructing flood control systems, the government, through the Department of Public Works and Highways, the Department of the Interior and Local Government and other concerned agencies, should launch a massive dredging program on all rivers and other water tributaries to contain floodwaters during heavy rainfall. He lamented that every year, lives and livelihood are lost because of massive floods such as the one caused by Typhoon “Ulysses.”
