No to baha! Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado takes action to prevent floods from worsening

Sep 6, 2019 @ 15:10

Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado was alarmed at the flooding that took place at Aguinaldo and Tirona Highway after a few hours of rain.

Mercado, in a Facebook post, said a road project in front of SM City Bacoor was found to be the culprit, which ws why she directed that this be fast tracked to prevent the problem from worsening.

She also sought funding for revetment projects and for the widening of waterways so that these would be able to take in a bigger volume of water.

There is also a JICA study that recommended courses of action to solve flood problems, she added.

Plans are always available, but only action on these would solve flood problems!

“Isang pagpupulong ang naganap kahapon sa pagitan ng City Gov’t ng Bacoor, Dpwh Reg4A ( RD Samson Hebra) at DE Donnie Cuna para mabigyan ng lunas ang maraming suluranin sa pagbaha ng ating Lungsod. Tayo ay lubusang naalarma sa pagbaha noong Linggo ng Aguinaldo at Tirona Hiway sa ilang oras lang na pagulan. Sinita natin ang proyekto sa may tapat ng Sm City Bacoor. Inutusan nating madaliin ang proyektong ito para magtuloytuloy ang daloy na tubig sa ilog mula Panapaan.Pinakiusapan natin napappondahan ang ilan pa sa mga proyektong revetment at pagpapalapad ng ating mga ilog para mabigyan na mas malaking daan ang malaking volume ng tubig pagtagulan. Isang JICA study ang prinisinta na sa atin para mabigyan ng lunas ang ilan sa mga isyu ng pagbaha.Napagusapan din ang flyover project sa may SM Molino para sa usaping trapiko sa lugar na ito,” Mercado posted.
