In an effort to further mitigate flooding in the Province of Bataan, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of three flood control structures in the Municipality of Dinalupihan.

Secretary Mark Villar said that the newly-built flood walls will serve as protection for residents living in Barangays Dalao, Maligaya, and Pita which are located near the river.

“With budget allocation from the 2020 General Appropriations Act (GAA), the DPWH Bataan First District Engineering Office (DEO) reported the completion of the 289.6-meter flood control structure along Maligaya River and the 305-meter wall along Pita River, with both projects amounting to P22.19 million,” Villar added.

A total of P43-million has been allotted for the completion of the project with a drainage system in Dalao River and a net length of 108-meters on the left side and 267-meters on the right.

“The much-needed infrastructure projects were completed on time despite the additional requirements poised by the minimum health standards.”

“We should also commend Bataan 1st DEO and Regional Director Roseller Tolentino for completing the much-needed infrastructure projects on time despite the additional requirements poised by the minimum health standards in order to aid the flood management program of the province,” the public works chief concluded.
