CAMANAVA FLOOD CONTROL PROJECT


I. PROJECT HISTORY/BACKGROUND

The CAMANAVA (Kaloocan,Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela) area is located in the northern part of Metro Manila Bay, located in the estuary of river deltas. The area is characteristically low-lying flat terrain, with the ground elevation in major parts being below high tide level. These distinct topographical features render the area to be frequently flooded by high tides, by heavy rains and river overflows. Flooding occurs throughout the year, particularly frequent during the rainy seasons from May to September, when the period of high tide takes place simultaneous with heavy rains.
From 1988 to 1990 the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) was already conducting a feasibility study of the Malabon-Tullahan River flood control and drainage system improvement for the Malabon-Navotas area with technical assistance from the Japan International Corporation Agency or JICA. This study identified extreme tide levels, overflow of the rivers and inadequate local drainage as the main causes of flooding in the area. To address these problems, the study formulated a flood control and drainage system improvement plan. Further, the project coverage was divided into two areas, namely; Phase I – the Kalookan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela areas (KAMANAVA) covering 18.50 sq. km. and Phase II – Valenzuela and parts of Obando and Mecauayan (VOM) covering 21.00 sq. km. The conduct of the feasibility study for this Second Phase is actually included under Phase I.

Phase I will be completed in June 2007 at a cost of P4.812 Billion, including right-of-way acquisitions costs. It involves the construction of an 8.6 km earth dike to protect Malabon from high water levels. The improvement of 4.13 km of existing drainage channels and construction of 2.18 km of new drainage channels; The raising of 10.64 km of river walls of the Malabon, Navotas and Marala Rivers to confine floods; the construction of five(5) pumping stations to pump out flood water during heavy rains; the installation of flood control gate structures to maintain the continuity of the flood protection barriers; and the construction of a navigable tide gate at the mouth of the Navotas River to allow vessels to pass during low tide and the same time function as a tidal gate to prevent intrusion of high tide.

The CAMANAVA Project is one of the three (3) priority projects identified under the 1990 Metro Manila Flood Control and Drainage Master Plan along with the East and West of Mangahan Floodways (the western part of which will be completed in 2007) and the Pasig-San Juan-Marikina. Together, these three (3) projects will complement one another to form the vital system of the overall flood control and drainage program of Metro Manila.

II. PROJECT SPECIFICATION
The project involves the raising of river walls by 12.4 km, enhancement of existing drainage channels and the construction of flood control structures such as an 8-km polder dike, navigational clock, 14 units of flood control gates, and 7 pumping stations. It also includes procurement of equipment and material such as gate levees, observation instruments, and garbage collection equipment. The camanava project centers on the northern and southern parts of the Malabon River. Experts propose to build an 8.6-kilometer polder dike—a dam big enough to hold a body of water—and raise the river wall by 4.4 kilometers as well as sites for navigation, floodgates and pumping station in the northern area of the Malabon River.
In the southern part, they plan to raise the left bank river wall by 1.1 kilometers, the Navotas and Marala river walls by 1.3 kilometers, construct 4 sites for pumping station with floodgates, improve drainage channels by 6 kilometers and build a new drainage channel about 2.7 kilometers.

III. PROJECT COMPONENTS

A. PROJECT AREA

The proposed flood protection and drainage improvement system, is designed to protect the project area against inundation from overbank flow of the Mallabon-Tullahan River; flooding induced by high tides in Manila Bay; and to alleviate internal runoff flooding.
The planning criteria adopted in the development of the proposed system is primarily based on the urgency of flood protection measures and priority areas, financial restrictions, trends of urbanization, geodetic and climatic variations, social factors and environmental considerations.
For the protection work against river overflows, a design scale of 30 years (30-year return period) was use based on JICA FS in 1990. For drainage improvement works, a design scale of 10 years (10-year return period) was adopted, based on DPWH’s Design Guidelines, Criteria and Standards and MMDA’s Policy Targets in Flood Control and Drainage in 1993.

B. PROPOSED FLOOD PROTECTION SYSTEM

The silent features of the proposed flood protection measures are as follows:
§ Construction of 8.6 km Polder Dike to protect the northern most part of the Project Area Against the high tide levels;
§ Raising of the existing river walls on the banks of the Malabon River from the river mouth up to Tenejeros Bridge and the Marala River from the mouth of its confluence with the Malabon River;
§ Installation of flood control gates to maintain the continuity of the flood protection barriers (polder dikes and river walls) where they cross the rivers and creeks;and
§ Construction of Navigation Gate near the mouth of the North Navotas River to maintain the continuity of the proposed protection barrier across the northern end of North Navotas River up to Estrella Bridge as their only route to get to the shipyards on the banks of the North Navotas River.

C. PROPOSED DRAINAGE SYSTEM

The project area is divided into seven (7) drainage ares as shown in Figure 1, namely: Maypajo (241 ha); Spine (173 ha); Catmon (355 ha); Bankulasi (75 ha); North Navotas (475 ha); South Pinagkabalian (255 ha); and Dampalit (233 ha)
The dikes and river walls system provides protection against the rising water levels in the surrounding area. However, the protected area is still liable to flood if storm water is not discharged effectively. The protection system discussed above but this is possible only during the times when the outside water level is low, generally under low tide conditions. Therefore, to discharge the rainwater during the times when the gates are closed (due to high water levels outside the protected area) pumping and appurtenant facilities are provided, as follows:
¨ Construction of Pumping Stations
Five (5) pumping stations, with total capacity of 44.1 m3/s will be constructed (excluding 2 pumping stations with combined capacity of 10.5m3/s the construction of which was differed due financial constraints);
¨ Improvement of Existing Drainage Channels
Within the protected area, the existing rivers, creeks and channels are used to convey rainwater towards pumping stations and independent floodgates. All existing drainage channels with inadequate capacities shall be improved accordingly;
¨ Construction of New Drainage Channels
Some drainage catchments do not have trunk drainage channels to convey storm water towards the pumping stations and floodgates, therefore, new drainage channels are provided in these areas;
¨ Construction of Regulation Ponds
In Catmon drainage area where several fishponds exist adjacent to Catmon Creek, it was found more economical to reduce the flood peak by utilizing portions of the fishpond areas for regulation ponds than increasing the pump capacity. The use of pump with capacity of 10.5 m/s with corresponding regulation pond of 12.5 ha is proposed in the area.

D. FUNDING SOURCE/CONSULTANTS/CONTRACTOR

Funding source for this project comes from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) under a Special Yen Loan Package (2000). Consultants in the said project are composed of the following: CTI ENGINEERING CO., LTD in association with NIPPON KOEI CO., LTD., WOODFIELDS CONSULTANTS, INC., PHILKOEI INTERNATIONAL, INC and PERTCONSULT INTERNATIONAL. NISHIMATSU CONSTRUCTION CO., LTD is its contractor.

E. BENEFITS

Upon completion of the project, floods will be reduced at tolerable levels, thereby improving the living conditions of about one million residents and enhancing economic activities in the area.
With the implementation of the project, the flooding from high tide and overbank flooding will be prevented (up to the 30-year flood event) and reduce the internal flooding from nearly 90 per cent of the area to less than 15 per cent during the 10-year flood event with water depth not exceeding 20 cm. The project will reduce the flood damages of more than 500 million pesos every year.

VI. CURRENT STATUS

Actual accomplishment as of July 25, 2006 is 60%. Although a portion of the old dike in Longos, Malabon breached on the night of July 12, 2006 compounding the flooding of Malabon because of high tide and the rains brought about by typhoon Florita project contractor provided remedial measures by laying sand bags on the breached existing small dike. The new CAMANAVA pumping station opened recently in Navotas. The Department of Public Works and Highways has reported that the P3.4 Billion worth CAMANAVA Flood Control Project will be finished on schedule. Aiming to minimize if not to end the perennial flood problem in the low lying areas of Caloocan, Malabon, Valenzuela and Navotas (CAMANAVA) Area, the DPWH HAS assured that the CAMANAVA Flood Control Project shall be completed on June next year. In her report to DPWH Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr., CAMANAVA Flood Control Project Director Carla Bartolo said the civil works for the project is now 60 percent complete and is right on target for its final completion next year. Bartolo added that based on the instructions of Secretay Ebdane, they took advantage of the dry season to fast track project implementation. Bartolo also assures that they are strictly monitoring construction activities of the entire project to assure quality of work. “ With the good progress of work this month, we are positive to complete the project by June 2007” Bartolo said. The project involves the raising of river walls along Tullahan and Marala River, construction of flood control gates on strategic locations, construction of pumping stations, polder dikes and submersible type navigation gate. Upon completion, the project aims to lessen the impact of flood among the residents of the CAMANAVA area thus paving way to sustainable economic growth in the area.



VII. ISSUES AND PROBLEMS

Design “flaws”?! The marine geologist Kelvin Rodolfo noted that the project’s design was “grossly inadequate” and “dangerous.” He said the estimate of land subsidence (sinking of land) was based on a 1990 document that presumed that the use of ground water would end in 1990 and that the consultants expected the additional subsidence to occur at a rate of only about one-half centimeter a year, causing only 15 centimeters of land subsidence by the year 2030. He alleged that the consultants used obsolete and erroneous data in determining the height of the 8-km polder dike, based on the old subsidence rates, or how fast the four cities are sinking into the water. Within a few days, the consultants of the project disputed Rodolfo’s allegations. Kin responded that the consultants recognized that excessive pumping of ground water in Metro Manila had caused the land to sink and, as a consequence, the sea level to rise. Weeks after the consultants responded to Rodolfo’s allegation of flaws in the design, both camps had made no effort to meet again or talk about the issue. This led the designers to conclude that the issues, which have been raised in the media, are “just allegations” without bases. Even the Public Works secretary, Bayani Fernando, once quoted as saying “technical opinions and warnings do not always come true,” implicitly doubted Rodolfo’s judgment on the project design. The consultants are confident that the design they made is certain that it passed several assessing bodies like Bureau of Design, NEDA Board with President Arroyo as the approving chairman, and counterpart bodies from the funding institution, Japan Bank for International Cooperation.
Below are the Past and Current issues and problems regarding the CAMANAVA Flood Control Project:
v Excavation of additional width of access channel for the North Navotas Navigation Gate is on-going, but it is disrupted constantly by fishing boats plying the area. Three sides of the steel sheet pile cofferdam for the Navotas Flood Gate have been completed, while excavation works is on going.
v Main constraint in the project implementation is the presence of returnees and/or new batch of informal settlers in areas previously cleared of obstruction. Relocation was substantially completed but there were returnees in the
area since preventive measures against re-occupation were lacking;
v Private lots and structures to be affected by the project ROW have yet
to be acquired;
v There was continued protest from organized groups against demolition work
of DPWH (a number of petition letters were addressed directly to NEDA);
v There was still no comprehensive socio-economic profile that would determine
the skills of relocatees that could be matched with the type of livelihood
where they needed assistance; and
v Concerns on the resettlement sites such as limited livelihood opportunities
and lack of basic facilities such as water and electricity supply.

CALOOCAN MAYORALTY RACE
‘Boy’ Asistio seeks disqualification of Echiverri

For alleged violation of campaign poster rules


By Erwin Oliva
INQUIRER.net

MANILA, Philippines -- Former Caloocan mayor Macario “Boy” Asistio Jr. filed a disqualification case against Mayor Enrico “Recom” Echiverri before the Commission on Elections (Comelec), accusing the city executive of violating the Fair Elections Act and Omnibus Election Code.

Asistio’s petition alleged that Echiverri took advantage of his position and put up giant campaign billboards and streamers even before he filed his candidacy.

The former mayor is seeking a comeback.

Echiverri’s certificate of candidacy showed the filed his reelection bid on March 26.

The petition said a “concerned citizen” had taken photos of Echiveri’s supposed campaign billboards on March 29, 2007. The billboards and streamers bore pictures of the mayor along with holiday greetings and other messages.

The Comelec has given Echiverri three days to file his reply three days after receipt of Asistio's petition, Michael Dioneda, director III of the Comelec’s National Capital Region (NCR) office.

Dioneda said the Comelec NCR has scheduled a hearing of Asistio’s complaint on April 18.

Echiverri is not alone! Almost all candidates already posted giant billboards with greetings even before election campaign period. Politics here, again, is heating up.

whoa! meron pa lang thread ang humble city ko! haha

Most people people perceive the North especially the CAMANAVA to be a very impoverished area in the outskirts of the metro. well it's kinda true, pero believe me marami ring mga middle class families living here. usually involved sila [actually kame rin] sa mga dirty industries like steel, motor and heavy equipment. And true marami ring factory dito considering it's proximity to the port area in Manila. We don't really want to see ten wheeler trucks carrying freights to parade in QC do we? haha blame the poor railway system our country have right now. kung namaintain lang sana yung Northrail[which my mom told me was flourishing during her younger years] edi sana sa may bulacan area or better yet sa clark pampanga na magsusuluputan ang mga factories diba? kaya pinagdarasal ko talaga gabigabi [kidding] na matuloy yang northrail rehab project ni GMA e. It is kinda odd really to have factories "within" the "metropolitan" area right? I actually had a vision e haha naisip ko lang kung maayos sana development ng caloocan e di sana pwedeng magtayo ng isang observation tower sa may monumento area at tawagin itong.. uhhm. "Monumento". kung ang malaysia may Petronas Tower at ang Macau may Macau Tower, sa atin Monumento? cool sana ng name haha[well sana].

Speaking of the North Caloocan, I think it has a potential of becoming a business center in the North if ever[!] matuloy yung MRT7 which will be passing through North Caloocan. there are a lot of empty land there right now which may be utilized for future developments.

Trivia: The Balintawak area of QC was once part of Caloocan but was removed from the city to make way for the formation of the "envisioned" Quezon City which unfortunately, again, did not happen] thus cutting the City in half. :P [now the North and South Caloocan]
