Marcos studies solutions to Pampanga flooding

PRESIDENT Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday ordered an extensive study of the proposed impounding system in Candaba, Pampanga as a long-term solution to the flooding problem in the province.

He issued the directive during a briefing at the Provincial Capitol of the City of San Fernando after inspecting areas affected by floods.

The proposal to establish a huge collection pool in Candaba cropped up during the President's meeting with local officials to address massive flooding in Central Luzon.

Marcos raised other possible solutions to the massive flooding such as dredging operations as a short-term solution and elevating certain structures in San Simon, Pampanga, to ease heavy traffic in the area.

“We'll raise the NLEX so that what recently happened will not happen again. And then we will study alternative routes,” he said.
