Build own drainage system, Alwana told

THE City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate chaired by Councilor Dometilo Acenas Jr. acted on the request of Villaflora Subdivision for a solution regarding their prevailing flooding problem.

In his letter request to the committee, Engr. Rexar Rañoa, president of Villaflora Subdivision II Homeowners Association, said the residents are complaining that during heavy downpour voluminous rain water flood the area which cause some residents to evacuate.

He said this is caused by the flash floods coming from higher ground from the fence of Alwana Subdivision.

According to the residents, a natural drainage or creek between Alwana and Villaflora Phase II Subdivision was reclaimed and concrete fences were built over by Alwana Subdivision, which blocks the natural flow of rain water from their side to the creek.

Rañoa said there is an accumulation of water in the concrete fence which goes directly to some residential houses  and  causes damages to their properties.

It may be recalled that Acenas tasked the City Engineering Office to conduct an ocular inspection and take appropriate action on this concern.

Based on the investigation and verification report of the city engineer, some  portions of the subdivision road that were damaged by the flash floods have not been passable for almost 10 years.

The City Engineering Office said the developer of Alwana should provide its own drainage system so as not to cause flash flood in the adjoining lower areas. The said drainage system should connect a defined waterway, the city engineer said. (clo)
