Hi tech! Mayor John Rey Tiangco: Pumping stations in Navotas to be automated
The pumping stations in Navotas City will be automated to ensure they are running smoothly, Mayor John Rey Tiangco said.
In a speech at the Philippine Science Centrum’s Mobile Interactive Hands-on Exhibits sa Kapitbahayan Elementary School, Tiangco said the pumping stations need to be automated since they have increased from an initial 20 in 2007 to 59.
“Medyo mahirap na ang pakikipagkoordinasyon sa ganoon karaming operator. Kaya kailangan nating magkaroon ng sistema para masigurado natin ang maayos na takbo ng lahat ng mga pumping station,” he said.
The pumping stations are part of Navotas City’s flood mitigation efforts.
The city also has coastal dikes and riverwalls to avoid heavy flooding.
