Sen. Revilla, DPWH, local leaders check flood projects in Bulacan

CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., together with Public Works and Highways Bulacan 1st District Engineer Henry C. Alcantara and Assistant District Engineer Brice Ericson D. Hernandez inspected ongoing flood control projects in Calumpit, Paombong and Hagonoy on Thursday (Aug. 10).

The team was joined by local leaders from the said municipalities, including Mayor Maryanne Marcos of Paombong, Mayor Flordeliza Manlapaz of Hagonoy, and Mayor Glorime Faustino of Calumpit.

“We need to act now to protect our communities from the devastating effects of flooding,” said Senator Revilla. “These flood control projects are a critical step in that effort.”

This was the statement of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., when he inspected ongoing flood control projects in Calumpit, Paombong and Hagonoy.

According to Alcantara, the purpose of the visit was for Senator Revilla to gain a comprehensive understanding of the necessity for flood control structures in flood-prone areas and assess the current situation, including the residents, with the aim of formulating a well-defined strategy to address extensive flooding.

Alcantara also clarified that the flood control projects in Paombong and Hagonoy are integral components of a broader initiative led by the DPWH to enhance flood control infrastructure within the province.

It can be recalled that President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr., visited the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga on Monday, August 7, to assess the situation due to severe flooding caused by Typhoons Egay and Falcon, which intensified the southwest monsoon and resulted in widespread inundation in the affected areas.

Construction Engineer Jaypee D. Mendoza and field engineers from Bulacan 1st DEO were also present during the inspection. (UnliNews Online)
