Mayor assures remedial measures at dumpsite for rainy season

BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan on Wednesday assured that remedial measures are in place at the Irisan dumpsite to prevent another trash slide with the onset of the typhoon season.

The mayor said that concerned offices undertook clearing of water passageways and drainage canals around the site to prevent any water buildup and safeguard the remaining inert wastes still deposited in the area.

He said covering the inert wastes to prevent water from seeping in will also be undertaken along with other safety measures to ensure that the wastes will not cascade.

The mayor said other safety be instituted by the city engineering office and the city building and architecture office while the city is waiting for the completion of the documentary requirements preparatory to the implementation of the restoration work for the collapsed retaining wall to be funded by the P80 million approved by Malacanang recently through the Dept. of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

He said the city is currently completing the procedural and documentary requirements with the DPWH and will be ready to award the project to a qualified contractor once the process has been completed.

He said the city's Bids and Awards Committee decided to employ the fastest means allowed by law to award the project so that it will be implemented and completed soon. – A Refuerzo
