Retarding Basins to Solve Cavite Flooding as of September 2021

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is optimistic that the construction of retarding basins will make flood hazard areas in Cavite more resilient during the rainy season and swift changes in global weather. Here’s the update as of September 2021. Have you seen the progress lately?

The construction of the Imus retarding basin has a detention pond area of about 35 hectares while Bacoor retarding basin has two temporary storage basins connected by sluiceway for a total area of 9 hectares to contain floodwaters during a storm and reduce the peak volume of flood flow in Imus River and Bacoor River.
