Ruben commented on REHABILITATING A RIVER BANK

The project of Planting Bamboo as a means to address river banks' erosion can be expanded to reforest watershed. In the case of Iligan City, illegal cutting of trees was rampant. Thus, when hard rain came all the water damped in the mountain flows unabated to the river below. And since the amount of rain damped in the mountains in a day is now more or less equivalent to a month's rainfall, definitely the rivers in Iligan City overflowed their banks and inundated the whole city. The rain water from the mountains brought with it logs. The logs carried by the river water largely contributed to the destruction of bridges and other infrastructure along the river.
