Flood mitigation: Caloocan launches clean-up drive on esteros

As part of its flood mitigation campaign, the city of Caloocan has recently launched a citywide clean-up drive among esteros like this one taken by Maharlika TV News at Doña Rita Creek located between Barangays 19 and 21.

Flooding is almost always associated with heavy rains and so with assorted flotsam and litters, no thanks to unconcerned citizens who unmindfully disposes trash as they please.

Improper disposal of trash, especially in the metropolis, causes flooding as non-biodegrable waste products drift away and chokes canals.
