Toby Tiangco scolds Navotas residents after massive canal clean-up
Residents have their share of the blame whenever the city is hit by floods.
Mayor Toby Tiangco went to scold the people of Navotas after a city-wide cleanup of canals yielded a whopping 88 sacks of garbage from the city’s floodways.
The result: Every time rains hit, streets are quickly flooded even with pumping stations around town.
“Kapag barado ang kanal, hindi mahihigop ng Kanduli Bombastik Pumping Station ang tubig ulan at ito ay magiging dahilan ng pagbaha sa nasabing lugar,” Tiangco said.
“Paalala po muli na nakasalalay sa atin ang kalutasan sa problema sa basura na sanhi ng pagbaha.”
Will people ever learn?
