MMDA: construction of pumping stations ongoing to alleviate flooding conditions

MANILA: Three pumping stations are currently being constructed to address flooding problems in Metro Manila, specifically along the flood-prone areas of Taft Avenue, United Nations Avenue, and Malate.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What areas in Metro Manila will the three pumping stations service?

    Once completed, per MMDA, the three pumping stations will serve the flood-prone areas of Taft Avenue, United Nations Avenue, and Malate.
  • How many operational pumping stations does the MMDA have?

    Currently, the MMDA noted that it has 71 operational pumping stations.
  • Per the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) the said pumping facilities are expected to address flooding problems in the aforementioned areas.

    “Installation of power supply is ongoing at the pumping stations in Remedios and Abad, and is set to be completed by June, while the one in Padre Faura is nearing completion and will be turned over to the agency by July,” MMDA Acting Chairman Attorney Don Artes said in a previous press briefing.

    Should the pumping stations be insufficient, the agency’s head honcho said they have agreed to open the floodgates of the sewerage treatment plant in Manila Bay as needed so that flood water will flow freely and recede quickly in affected areas.

    Meanwhile, the Sunog Apog Pumping Station — which is being constructed along San Diego Street in Manila — is expected to reduce flooding along Espana Boulevard.

    Likewise, four pumping stations are eyed to be built in Tatalon, Dona Imelda, and Roxas District, to help address flooding problems along Araneta Avenue in Quezon City.

    Further, a series of detention ponds is being proposed inside Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

    Repair and maintenance of existing flood-alleviating installations are being undertaken. For example, one of the pumps in a station in Mandaluyong will be repaired. The MMDA intends to shoulder the cost of the rehabilitation to expedite the resolution and address flooding in Maysilo Circle.

    A drainage improvement is being undertaken in Caloocan City, which is the cause of localized flooding in the area.

    The agency was happy to report that its 71 pumping stations are fully operational, with 36 of them being upgraded under the Metro Manila Flood Management Project.
