Detailed Narrative Description of Project:
The Project is located on a flat alluvial plain in the lower reaches of the Pampanga River, parts of which were affected by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. It involves both for flood mitigation and agri-development mainly for double cropping rice as a mainstay, and formulation of an irrigation scheme covering a net area of 11,450 hectares with a diversion dam with steel gates, main canals, laterals and sub-laterals of 163 km, and main, secondary and collector drains of 116 km. and project facilities.
