Outgoing Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez lauded the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for providing another dredging machine to boost the city government’s desilting operations.
The Dagupan politiko said the new dredging machine is the city government’s fifth one.
The new machine will be used on the sandbars at the mouth of Calmay River.
“We have been continuously reaching out to the national government because resolving the flood problem in the city has always been our priority,” Fernandez said.
“Now, we have five dredging machines for desilting operations. We want to thank DPWH for their support dahil hindi nila tayo pinabayaan,” he added.
