DPWH-10: Ongoing construction of CDO drainage system stays a priority
by Rexcelle L. Tolentino
She explains that while drainages along national highways are already established and functional, the connected drainages in big waterways, like drainages from the residential areas, barangays or communities, if clogged and silted will only result in water waste overflowing.
(The existing drainage systems aren’t enough, because few of our drainages are already silted, clogged with trash, and a few that are non-functioning. That is why we construct drainage systems under the DPWH, and these are along our national roads)
These projects have also been under Environmental Impact Assessment before implementation for flood management, to prevent harm and hazards to the environment.
