The 355-linear meter flood control structure is going to replace old gabion retaining walls inside the port that have been damaged by strong storms resulting in deterioration over the years.
A project groundbreaking ceremony was held recently attended by District Engineer Roderick Andal and Aurora Lone District Representative Rommel Rico. Angara.
Target for completion by March 2023, the flood control structure will complement the existing concrete seawall at the feeder port in protecting residents from flooding and rising sea levels, especially during the typhoon season.
