The City Government of Marikina under the administration of Mayor Marcy Teodoro is adopting more measures to curb flooding in the city, especially during "habagat" and typhoon seasons. It has also began installing equipment to measure rainfall and the water level in low-lying areas.

The Local Government is currently implementing a project that would widen and deepen the Marikina River to prevent it from overflowing and flooding the areas nearby. It is also studying the design of a proposed dike.

“Pinapalalim at pinapalapad natin nang tama ang Ilog Marikina upang lumaki ang water carrying capacity nito. Pinag-aralan natin nang mabuti ito, pati na ang disenyo ng dike,” said Mayor Marcy, referring to the flood-control project being undertaken in the Marikina River.







 

“Mahalaga ang proyektong ito maiibsan na ang mabilis na pag-overflow ng Marikina River sa mga mababang lugar ng lungsod lalo na sa panahon ng tag-ulan,” Mayor Marcy added.

Aside from this, the City Government through the Marikina City Rescue 161 has started putting in place equipment that would measure rainfall and the rise in the water level in flood prone areas in the city such as on Libis Bulelak Street in Barangay Malanday and along Green Street in SSS Village in Barangay Concepcion Dos.





 

“Ang Gobyerno ng Marikina ay naglalagay ng mga karagdagang kagamitan upang makatulong sa pag-antabay ng mga naturang lugar na madaling bahain,” Rescue 161 said in its Facebook post. “Ito ay inumpisahan pa noong nakaraang Biyernes, Oktubre 5, 2018, sa pangunguna ng Rescue 161 sa tamang paggabay ng ating butihing Mayor Marcy Teoddoro.”
