Declogging operations continued Monday in front of Boracay Hospital that was hit by flashflood following the sudden heavy downpour in the island.
To lessen the flood problems in Boracay, the LGU Malay in cooperation with Boracay Island Water Company (BIWC) and Boracay Solid Waste Action Team (BSWAT) is now targeting the cleaning of drainage system particularly manholes.
It was recalled that the flooding that was experienced in some parts of Boracay was due to the clogging of the drainage system, wherein BRTF and LGU Malay also discovered that there are some illegal connections to the drainage, the reason why they also conducted a consultative meeting.
Meanwhile, BRTF is still waiting for the pumping station of Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) being one of the mitigating measures and temporary solution to the flooding problem in Boracay.
