Can RSA solve Metro Manila’s flooding problem?


San Miguel Corp. Corp. plans to submit an unsolicited proposal for a $2 billion spillway program designed to meet probable maximum flood.

SMC president Ramon S. Ang said he would propose a flood mitigation project which will which would drain floodwaters from Laguna de Bay to Manila Bay. This, he said, would help ease flooding in Metro Manila.

He cited the chronic flooding experienced during Typhoon Ondoy in 2009. He said Laguna de Bay is now only 2.5 meters deep when it used to be 20 meters deep.

Ang’s proposed spillway will have a diameter of 14 meters or almost 50 feet, and may also be a source of power.

If this spillway is not built, Ang said the water level would rise yearly, resulting in massive flooding in Metro Manila every rainy season.
