DULAG, Leyte A total of P48.5 million has been poured out by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second District Engineering Office for the construction of seawall along coastal villages in Dulag, Leyte.

District Engineer Gerald Pacanan said that the embankment project involves stone masonry with a total length of 482.5 meters and height of 2.5 meters.
