QC declogs canals amid fair weather
The Quezon City Engineering Department (QCED) is taking advantage of the monsoon break by declogging the drainage systems in the city’s public markets as flood mitigation measures.
QCED Road Maintenance Division chief Engr. Manny Quintos said the city had started its regular unclogging of line canals starting with the Murphy and Kamuning markets.
“Sa wet market kasi, ‘yung tubig nila, kumakalat tapos dumudulas. We have to drain their waterways up to their outfalls para tuyo ang palengke at hindi madulas,” Quintos said.
The QC Engineering Department has also removed waste materials congesting the drains of Kamuning Market and flood-prone roads like Mother Ignacia, V. Luna Extension, and Panay Avenue.
The declogging operation was undertaken in response to the orders of Mayor Joy Belmonte to unclog public market canals as well as flood-prone streets in the city.
