Inspection to Cover City’s Entire Drainage, Sewer System
April 11, 2015
BAGUIO CITY – The city council on Monday urged Mayor Mauricio Domogan to create a composite team to inspect the drainage network and sewer system not only at the central business district but in the entire city.
The body suggested that the team be headed by Councilor Fred Bagbagen, chair of the committee on health as its action officer with the city legal officer and the Association of Barangay Captains presidents as among the members.
The body conferred with representatives of the city environment and parks management office, city engineering office, city buildings and architecture office, health services office sanitation division, Dept. of Public Works and Highways Baguio City Engineering District and the Baguio City Police Office last Monday and confirmed the need for such inspection.
Bagbagen who broached the matter said there were indications that the drainage system at the CBD is becoming defective.
“Strong obnoxious odor is perennially steaming out from the drainage in the CBD particularly along the stretch of Magsaysay Avenue,” he said.
He said this poses hazard to health and must be addressed at once through an extensive inspection of the drainage system so that the city will determine the condition of the drainage facilities and institute remedial measures./A Refuerzo
