Nagtayo ang DPWH ng PhP19.7-milyong nagkakahalagang bagong flood control structure sa Munisipalidad ng Aguinaldo, Ifugao para protektahan ang mga palayan mula sa pag-apaw ng ilog sa lugar.
“Since the river tends to overflow especially during the rainy season, the flood control structure was built to prevent the accumulation of water on the flood plains, protecting lives and properties,” pahayag ni DPWH Sec. Mark A. Villar.
Ang protective structure ay may habang 600 metro na boulder at gabions.
“The success of DPWH projects would not be possible without our hardworking men in the field who deliver quality projects on time despite the pandemic,” dagdag pa ng Kalihim.
