The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of the flood control structure that will protect the public in Cabanglasan, Bukidnon against the overflowing river during heavy rains of long duration

Completed along the Bobonawan River in Barangay Cabulohan in Bukidnon, the P57.2-million project involves the construction of a dike reinforced concrete, which has a length of 340 meters and a height of six meters, “will protect people’s lives and property, and areas close to the river will be better shielded from potential flooding during severe rainfall.’’

“We hope that this project will no longer cause the displacement of locals in the occurrence of typhoons and heavy rains and help increase economic activities in the area to further promote local industries and tourism in the Province of Bukidnon,” the DPWH Region 10 Office Director
Zenaida Tan noted.

The project is implemented by DPWH Bukidnon 1st District Engineering Office headed by District Engineer Flordelis C. Enriquez and Assistant District Engineer Jan Paulo C. Lisondra funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2023. (Trixee Rosel/MANILA BULLETIN-Nov
