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 of flood.

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.
