DAGUPAN CITY – The SangguniangPanlungsod, through Resolution No. 6857-2013, has requested Mayor Belen T. Fernandez to direct the city engineer’s office to relocate the creeks and all available waterways based on the 1926 cadastral map.
According to Councilor Jose Netu M. Tamayo, author of the resolution, the move is in response to reports that most of the city’s waterways are now obstructed with man-made structures that impede the free flow of water towards the sea which in turn contributes to flooding in the city especially during high tide and heavy rains.
Tamayo’s proposed edict states that “there is a necessity to explore the causes of flooding in Dagupan City particularly in low-lying areas in order to prevent the inconvenience as well as damages brought about by the problem.”
In this regard, the SP set a meeting with City Engineer Virginia Rosario on August 23 to discuss matters related to the resolution and among them is to identify the causes of obstruction which clog the waterways.
The resolution was duly and jointly seconded by Councilors Alvin T. Coquia, Joaquin D. Reyes, AlipioSerafin D. Fernandez, Jesus D. Canto and Marvin Fabia. (CIO 08/20/21)
