Calbayog flood control extension

CALBAYOG CITY The Department of Public Works and Highways Samar First District Engineering Office (SFDEO) completes the construction and extension of flood control structures in Brgy. Oquendo, Calbayog City.

The P40 million project which was completed last July 18, 2018, consists of 586 meters of flood mitigating structures using structural concrete and reinforcing steel. It is under contract with Victoria Development and Construction Supply Corp.

This project serves as an extension to the existing flood control structures in Oquendo and aims to protect the residents of nearby barangays; Begaho and Nabang. These areas lie adjacent to Jibatang River and are subjected to the abrupt changes in water levels that cause flooding.

On behalf of our community, we are very thankful to DPWH for completing this flood control project. Ive been living here for quite a while and Ive experienced numerous floods throughout my lifetime. As a resident and a business owner, now I dont have to worry about the flood damaging my goods and property, said Christine Oate.
