The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed two pumping stations to help mitigate flooding in the Barangays Baritan, Concepcion, Muzon, Bayan-bayanan, and parts of Dampalit and Halong-duhat in Malabon City.

DPWH NCR Ador G. Canlas, in his report to DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar, said that the projects particularly aim to improve management of flood waters within the vicinity of Malabon City often flooded during the rainy season.

“In line with our core goal to save lives and properties, it is just fitting that we prioritize construction of flood mitigation projects nationwide. Safety and health conditions of residents in Malabon are now more ensured with the completion of these projects,” Secretary Villar said.

Aside from the pumping stations, DPWH Malabon-Navotas District Engineering Office (DEO) is undertaking more flood control projects that aim to provide new and modernized flood control facilities. Currently, construction works are on-going for the completion of riverwalls along Malabong-Tullahan River, Pinagkabalian River, and Malabon-Navotas River.

The P27-milllion pumping station projects in Malabon, started in September 2018, was funded under the 2018 General Appropriations Act (GAA).
