DPWH Completes River Structure in Rizal, Palawan To Prevent Flooding

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said that the river structure in Rizal, Palawan to prevent flooding has been completed.

On Friday (December 4, 2020), DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said that they have complete the river control project along Iraan River in Rizal, Palawan. The project aims to prevent the flooding in the area.

The revetment structure amounting to P552.37 million is one of the major flood-control projects of DPWH. The structure would prevent the Iraan River from overflowing, which could cause flooding.

“This river structure will block the overflow of the Iraan River during rainy and typhoon season, protecting residential and agricultural land in the area,” Villar said.

Villar said that DPWH is planning to build more concrete structure to prevent flowing in flood-prone areas especially in residential areas along riversides of southern Palawan. DPWH Palawan has also finished the 2.73-kilometer Tigaplan River flood-control structure.

“Aside from the completed [project] in Barangay Iraan, we are building more of these concrete structures along [with] identified flood-prone riversides of southern Palawan,” Villar added.
