The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently completed the construction of a 318-meter riverbank protection structure along Palico River in Brgy. Bilaran, Nasugbu, Batangas.
DPWH Regional Office IV-A Director Jovel G. Mendoza said that the flood control structure constructed under the DPWH flood management program consists of a concrete revetment wall on steel sheet piles.
“The completion of the flood control facility will ensure the safety of nearby low-lying communities, from the effects of flooding during heavy rains,” added Director Mendoza.
The P75-Million construction of this flood control structure funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2022 (GA 2022) was implemented by DPWH Batangas First District Engineering Office.
