Here are pictures of workers hired by the local government of Cainta, Rizal to clean up drains in the hopes of alleviating the floods that frequently hits subdivisions like this one. In sudden downpours that last for two hours, flash floods often block roads and causing jams that last for more than 12 hours, stranding commuters who have no option but to walk home in deep and murky floodwater.
Residential areas also have to deal with muddy water that enter houses. Residents cleaning their homes of mud and debris in Rizal is a common sight every year during the rainy season. The little drain maintenance will hardly do anything to alleviate future floods. What is needed is a long-term project that will divert flood waters to big drainage systems massive enough to take in all the rain water and divert it to where it will cause no harm or damage.
