CALBAYOG CITY –
Torrential rains cause surface water to overtop the channels of
Panlayahan Creek, which spill onto the adjacent road and nearby
Needless to say, the
flooding is a perpetual problem for some of the residents of
Barangay Panlayahan in Calbayog City, Samar.
To address the plight of
Calbayognons in this part of the city, DPWH-Samar First District
Engineering Office (SFDEO) has constructed reinforced concrete flood
control structures along said creek, totalling 213 linear meters.
The project, amounting to
P20 million, was completed way ahead of schedule. It is one of the
first projects awarded under the General Appropriations Act (GAA) of
2019 completed by the DEO.
