DENR to conduct survey on Chico river flood control projects
TABUK CITY, Kalinga, Aug. 8 (PIA) - - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) provincial office here committed to conduct an initial survey of flood control and dredging projects along the silted portion of the Chico River from Calanan, this city to Camalog in Pinukpuk to assess and identify areas that need deterrent structures.
Severino Dalutag, OIC provincial environment and natural resources officer, said during the recent kapehan that their office can handle the initial survey.
The detailed technical survey and engineering design, however, will be handled by a joint team from the Chico River Task Force composed of the Provincial Engineering Office, Kalinga District Engineering Office, DENR, provincial and city Assessors Office, and Congressional District office.
The provincial government will adopt the sharing scheme in sourcing out funds for the technical survey of flood control and dredging projects as approved by the Kapehan body composed of heads of offices in the province.
Acting Governor Allen Jesse Mangaoang, who presided the Kapehan, pushed for the counter-parting approach in order to come out with the needed survey funds.
Edwin Tubban, engineer and co-chairman of the Chico River Task Force, said he will meet with members to prepare the survey plan to determine how much fund is needed. Identified sources of funds are the provincial LGU, city government of Tabuk, and the office of the congressman. (PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
