MGB: JRMP II relocation is Safe!

Calinog, Iloilo – The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) affirmed the reliability of the relocation site for the families affected by Iloilo’s biggest irrigation project.

 

The affirmation came after the geohazard assessment conducted by the MGB together with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), proponent of the Jalaur River Multi-Purpose Project Stage II (JRMP II) and the National Housing Authority (NHA) on October 22, 2015. 

 

NIA will relocate families that will be directly affected by the JRMP II.  The relocation site in Sitio Agburi in Barangay Cahigon, Calinog was selected by the relocates themselves after series of consultative discussion.

 

MGB 6 Supervising Geologist Leilanie Suerte described the location’s topography as hilly to mountainous. “In looking for a relocation site the ideal is situated in the flat area because the slope is flat. In this case, our relocates chose this hilly area hence it will need engineering interventions or slope stabilization measures,” she said.
