Constructions Overview

Detailed Narrative Description of Project:

The topography of Kalookan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela (KAMANAVA) is low and flat with elevations ranging from around sea level to 2-3m above mean sea level. Flooding may occur throughout the months, particularly frequent during the rainy season, when the period of high tides also coincides with. Flooding is caused by a combination of floodwater in the Malabon-Tullahan River and inadequate local drainage.
Being a flagship project of the Government and considering its huge potential impact to flood mitigation and environmental improvement, the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC, formerly OECF) has concluded to extend its financial support and executed the appraisal on the Project in October 1999. The loan agreement (Special Yen Loan Package) was signed by both governments on April 7, 2000, and the Project was started in August 2000.

The project consists of flood control and drainage improvement works in KAMANAVA area consisting of the construction of polder dikes (8 km), raising of  river wall (12.4 km), construction of navigation lock (1 site), flood gates (5 sites), control gates (2 sites), pumping stations (7 sites), and improvement of existing drainage canals.
