The rainy season is here again. And one of the most serious problems that Cagayan de Oro has been facing yearly is the worsening flood in Lapasan, Agora, and CM Recto which is caused by clogged drainage systems like Bitan-ag Creek.
To ensure declogging of the city’s drainage system and creeks before the rainy season strikes, City Mayor Oscar Moreno created the “Hapsay Sapa’ campaign.
The clean-up operation started on the late evening of June 3 until early morning at Bitan-ag Creek along Gaabucayan Street. The team is composed of the Department of Public Works and Highways (2nd District Office), City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, City Engineering Office, Roads and Traffic Administration and City Social Welfare and Development Office.
