Olongapo's Dredging operation in full swing
Simultaneous dreging operation is being undertaken at mouth of Kalaklan River and at the city's flood control gates in West Bajac-Bajac just beside Dayrit's Restaurant and a few meters from Kalaklan-Mabayuan Bridge.
Upon order of Mayor Bong Gordon, all barangays are concurrently declogging drainages in their respective areas of responsibilities to ensure that the city is ready for the onslaught of rainwater expected to come anytime soon.
See videos below for a report by Councilor Ed Piano on the said operations:
In only a short span of time, some 7, 200 cubic meters of silt and sand have already been removed from the mouth of Kalaklan River and near the East Baja-Bajac Flood Gate through the IMS Model 5012 Versi-Dredge. The US-made dredging machine was procured to deepen the rivers and channels in the city to prevent flooding, specially during the rainy season. PAO
