Environment and Natural Resources: Pump Station Flooding Impact Assessment

Title variants
Languages of publication
Floods have large environmental consequences for communities and individuals. As most people are aware, the immediate impacts of flooding include loss of human life, damage to property, destruction of plants and trees, and deterioration of health conditions owing to waterborne diseases. For decades, Manila City has been battling with flood risk. The area has been inundated with flood waters several times, whether it is due to tropical weather, strong rain fall events, or rising waters. This has resulted in millions of pesos in damages, and in some instances, the same home has been affected multiple times. Given the age of the existing Quiapo pump station even with current upgrades and the potential development of other areas within the catchment area, there is a need to identify, review, and recommend some alternatives solution for the future of the Quiapo pump station. The researcher is thus undertaking this study to review alternatives for upgrades or replacement of the existing Quiapo pump station. It aims also to describe the common plants and trees damaged by typhoons and floods, animals affected by devastating floods, common diseases during floods, effectiveness of existing pumping stations and advantages of the new pumping station, the effects of high floods on trees, animals and human health, and the impact of some alternatives solutions of the Quiapo pump station on natural environment to prevent and protect the adverse impact of flood events on human health and safety, on valuable goods and property, and on the aquatic and terrestrial environment.
