MANILA, Philippines — Due to a broken drainage, constructions dump their water on the road which led to flooding along Macapagal Boulevard, Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said on Wednesday.

The area affected is the road adjacent to the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange.

“Sinabihan na rin po namin para po ‘yung kanilang drainage po ay umano ‘yung tubig du’n sa ibang lugar, pero talaga ‘yun lang po ang tatakbuhan kaya kailangan matapos ‘yung drainage na ‘yun,” Olivarez said on Teleradyo’s Kabayan.

(We told them to direct their drainage to another way but that is the only path where the waters could go so the drainage should be repaired already.)

When asked if the drainage is owned by the government, the mayor affirmed.

“Yes, it was affected by the construction of new building in the area,” he told INQUIRER.net in a text message.

Olivarez said that they have coordinated with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to work on the issue.

“[It’s] a national road, already talked to DPWH. We will start construction tomorrow, we already settled issued of right of way regarding topping point of the drainage,” he said.

Olivarez said that the road is the responsibility of the public works as it is a national road. However, the city government will also work on it because it is under their jurisdiction.

“Sa public works po ‘yan, sa DPWH po ‘yan pero hindi po kami tumatalikod sa responsibilidad, ‘yan ay jurisdiction ng Parañaque,” the mayor said.

(That is under the DPWH but we are not turning our back on the responsibility.)

Three to five constructions are ongoing in the said area, Olivarez noted.
