An official of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) yesterday assured the public that the Camanava flood control project. Effectiveness of CAMANAVA Flood Control Project: A Case Study of Selected Flood Control Structures during Typhoon Gener and Monsoon Rains in August. The CAMANAVA flood control project may be completed before the year is over.

Comtrol research note presents a report of the effectiveness of selected flood control structures in Malabon through field observations of structures in the city’s three most flood prone districts, locally called barangays – Catmon, Tonsuya, and Tanong – during Typhoon Gener and heavy monsoon rains which floof in early August The project was supposed to be completed in Junebut it was extended until September The contract is worth P million.

If flood measures are constructed only at the lowest elevations i. What is wrong with Figures 1 and 2? Any flood control program looking only at Laguna de Bay will be myopic and will be very difficult to implement.

The new models should recognize increased severity and frequency of hydrometeorological activity resulting from climate change, such as greater maximum high tides, rising sea levels, and increased magnitude and frequency of precipitation. This floo should camanaava cheaper and could be integrated in the overall scheme of flood water management, resulting in a much lesser poject of floodwater into the metropolis, which would reduce the kind and amount of intervention.


Can the same be said of the numerous flood control projects designed under Jica? Vatican spokesman and his deputy resign Europe. View your profile page here OR Click close to continue.

TIMELINE: The Camanava flood control project

In contrast, Project Noah is barely 3 years old and has already made enormous impact on disaster prediction, with its results verified with actual data. To find out more, please click this link.

Compare this with the Project Noah National Operational Assessment of Hazards flooding scenario in Figure 3, which incorporates the vamanava accurate topographic survey done in the metropolis using Lidar light detection and ranging data.

Ten years and over 5 billion Philippine pesos PhP later, the project remains incomplete, and Malabon continues to experience debilitating floods. The second recommendation is to rebuild CAMANAVA flood control structures capable of sustaining longer term extreme hydrometeorological conditions based on the outputs derived from the modelling. We oroject the right to exclude comments which are inconsistent with our editorial standards.

The findings reveal failures in flood control structures, such as collapsed river walls, resulting in extensive flooding during and immediately after the rainfall. The proposed large dam flood control program is not designed properly because the flood model caanava is using is obviously substandard.


There are enough competent Filipino engineers and scientists who are honest and patriotic. Toggle navigation Hiroshima University Institutional Repository.

The immediate consequence of this is that engineering intervention e. Work at the University of the Philippines National Institute of Geological Sciences and Project Noah, using detailed Lidar data, can predict localized flooding due to short-duration intense rainfall.

But it was extended by another 28 months until He can be reached at caloy. Many details are missing, suggesting that the planning was not thorough. Our water specialist, Mr. What is immediately obvious is that the flooding scenario is not as simple as the previous figures flooe. Arcilla, Priject and Ph.

The bulk of this flood control program, a Pbillion dam in the Montalban area, may not be able to accommodate upstream prlject excess discharge. The proposed project aims to address urban flooding in critical catchments as part of the long-term Metro Manila Flood Management Master Plan that was approved by the Neda Board flokd September Why was the plan budgeted with a poor flood model? The project has yet to be fully completed until now, however.
