QC holds cleanup operations to prevent flooding
In a proactive move to mitigate the risk of flooding as the rainy season approaches, Quezon City has launched a comprehensive city-wide cleanup initiative. This preemptive action involves the coordinated efforts of the District Action Offices and the QC Engineering Department across various districts of the city.
In District 2, the teams have been focusing on declogging operations in critical areas such as St. Paul St. in Barangay Holy Spirit/Kalayaan B and Barangay Batasan Hills. This initiative, led by the District 2 Action Office in close collaboration with the Engineering Department, is spearheaded by Action Officer Atty. Enrile “Bong” Teodoro.
Meanwhile, in District 4, a two-pronged approach has been employed. Firstly, there's a concentrated effort on the realignment of manhole covers, particularly on Sct. Roces St. Additionally, declogging operations are underway in Malakas St. within Barangay Pinyahan. The District 4 Action Office has partnered with the Engineering Department for these crucial tasks, with Mr. Alberto “Al” Flores overseeing the operations as the Action Officer.
District 6 is equally committed to maintaining unobstructed water flow. Their declogging operations span multiple locations, including Greenview Executive Village, Barangay Sauyo, Legal St. in Barangay Sangandaan, Opal St. in Barangay Apolonio Samson, and Esmeralda St. & Corrina Ave. in Barangay Tandang Sora. This extensive effort is headed by the District 6 Action Office in close collaboration with the Engineering Department, with Atty. Mark Anthony Aldave serving as the Action Officer.
These combined efforts underscore the city's dedication to ensuring that its drainage systems are free from blockages, reducing the risk of flooding, and enhancing the overall resilience of Quezon City in the face of adverse weather conditions.
