DULAG, Leyte – Intending to protect the residents along coastal villages, the Department of Public Works and Highways Leyte Second District Engineering Office geared up a total of P17 million worth of flood mitigation project in Dulag, Leyte.
District Engineer Gerald Pacanan said that the embankment project involves the installation of 120 meters prefabricated concrete pile sheet that would absorb and lessen the force of waves and redirect the water towards the sea.
The project will alleviate the problems of erosion along the coastline and reduce the hazards of storm surge to the residents of Brgy. Luan during the occurrence of typhoon.
“It is always the top priority of our office to protect and ensure safety of the people and of the community, especially those that are greatly susceptible to the dangers of flooding during inclement weather conditions,” Pacanan added.
The project started on June 07, 2019 and will be completed on or before November 21, 2019.
For 2019, the district has carried out a total of twelve flood mitigation projects amounting to P286.74 million.
