Del Guzman is also calling the attention of neighborhood Cities to refrain from throwing garbages along the waterlines to avoid flooding.
"Tayo ay gumagawa ng mga hakbang upang hindi lamang mapangalagaan ang kapaligiran bagkus ay upang makapagligtas na rin ng buhay at ari-arian laban sa mapaminsalang baha o pagtaas ng tubig sa Ilog ng Marikina sa tuwing may kalamidad. Ito ay hindi lamang tungkulin ng pamahalaan kung hindi tungkulin rin ng bawat isa." - Mayor Del Guzman.
