River cleanup project to ease flooding in Bulacan

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here in partnership with the provincial government of Bulacan and the local government of Malolos City launched recently the Bulacan River System Cleanup Project in an effort to protect communities from flooding as the onset of southwest monsoon or “habagat” takes place and in support of the cleanup and rehabilitation of the historic Manila Bay.

Paquito Moreno, executive director of the DENR in Central Luzon, said the province-wide project will administer dredging activities in the major river systems and other tributaries in Bulacan.

"Dredging creeks is imperative to sustain the cleanup and rehabilitation efforts of Manila Bay. And through this, we can remove solid wastes at pinch point areas, and allow water to flow freely," he explained.

He said project will start in the 4.6-km Apulid creek in Longos village in Malolos where heavy siltation was observed.  

Apulid creek is one of the water tributaries in Malolos which is directly connected to the larger Sto. Niño River, a major river system that drains directly to Manila Bay.

The project will also reduce the risk of flooding in the province especially during habagat season since dredging allows the creeks and rivers to carry larger volume of water, Moreno added.
