Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval inspects cause of flooding
Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval’s first full day on the job had her wading through floods at Barangay Hulong Duhat.
Sandoval inspected the area and also checked on the cause of the water inundating the streets, which was a broken floodgate.
She said the Tanza Navigation Gate was defective and could not be operated, which was why it was unable to control the rise of the water.
She said she would continue to coordinate with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the Department of Public Works and Highways so that the problem could be addressed.
She also vowed to ensure the proper maintenance of the floodgates.
“Atin rin pong sisiguraduhin na may nakalaang budget para sa flood gates at prinsa lalo na sa kurudo, manpower, repair, at maintenance ng mga ito. Sa pag-ahon ng Malabon, hindi na po dapat ito mangyayari pang muli,” she said.
