Bulacan asks Pampanga to excavate, deepen Candaba Swamp to prevent floods

CITY OF MALOLOS - The Bulacan government on Thursday asked its neighboring province, Pampanga, to excavate and deepen the Candaba Swamp to prevent floods from cascading towards the Bulacan towns of Calumpit and Hagonoy. The process would allow the swamp to contain more runoff rainwater and river water from Pampanga and Nueva Ecija, which flows straight to the two Bulacan towns, said Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado in a news conference. Calumpit and Hagonoy are enduring floods as high as six feet aft
