Excess Mud

Typhoon Ondoy has not only brought floods to Marikina but a tremendous amount of mud as well. Mud was everywhere and anywhere floods were during the typhoon. When the floods subsided, the massive amount of mud was left.

The mud was cleaned and collected and eventually placed in designated areas. Weeks after the extensive city cleaning, the mud eventually hardened and turned into dirt and soil.

Now, the city has an excess of soil. One of the biggest designated areas where the soil was dumped was underneath the Marcos Highway bridge right beside the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge near SM City Marikina. The soil was compacted and neatly stacked in a way that it doesn't look like a sight for sore eyes. In fact, it looks a bit like Egyptian ruins.

The service roads from SM City Marikina leading to Marcos Highway are still closed to traffic as part of the roads are used to maintain the excess soil.
