The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of a flood mitigation structure in Rizal, Nueva Ecija in time for this rainy season.

Implemented by the DPWH-Nueva Ecija First District Engineering Office, the project with a total cost of PHP48 million has a length of 262 lineal meters from Barangay Poblacion East to Barangay Calaocan in Rizal town.

“As one of our priorities is the safety of our constituents, the District Engineering Office will continue to build flood control structures that will help reduce the adverse effects of flooding such as lower than expected agricultural production, or losses in livelihoods especially those living in floodplains,” District Engineer Armando Manabat said in a statement on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the construction of a 719.12-lineal meter flood control structure in Barangay Ariendo section of Digmala River in Bongabon town, also in Nueva Ecija is now in full swing.

Nueva Ecija 2nd District Engineer Elpidio Trinidad said the flood control structure is designed to shield residents of onion-producing barangays in Bongabon from flooding.

Trinidad said he recently inspected the PHP81-million project to observe the progress of construction activities.

“We are validating and monitoring the implementation of this PHP81-million project funded under the 2022 General Appropriations Act to ensure that its implementation is consistent with the approved plans and Program of Works,” he said. (PNA)
