Dia said: “Prior to the completion of these projects, rain-swollen Salug Daku inundates farm lands and residential properties.”
The DPWH built two revetments. The first is a six-meter revetment with a breadth of 487.6 meters. The other project has a height of 8.69 meters and a length of 328 meters.
