The construction by the Malay Engineering at the Vilage of Manoc-Manoc to finally put a solution to the flooding experienced at the area, will not take thirty (30) days.
This was according to Engr. Elezer Casidsid, Municipal Engineer of Malay during an interview on Friday, September 07. He said construction has been ongoing for a week.
Casidsid added digging at the area was started since they plan to make an outlet of water from Faith Village going to Lugutan and the tube will pass through an existing drainage.
It can be recalled that the situation at the area has been criticized several times at the Town Council of Malay, and the situation has been complained about several times, and the complaints have continued. The criticisms and complaints are about the frequent flooding and presence of water at the area even when it is not raining.
Meanwhile, on the flooding at the intersection of Tulubhan and Angol at Manoc-Manoc, Island Administrator Glenn Sacapaño has given directive to put a downward passage for water from the area.
This is since the water that originates from and accumulates at the street at the area, is just rainwater and is not dirty. The remedy is to prevent the water from gathering there which would be unsightly for motorists according to the Administrator.
Sacapaño believes that for the planned water passage going to Angol to be allowed, thorough explanation is needed.
