Petition to close all the Open Drainage in Caloocan City

 

Stake Holders:

·         Department of Health

·         FEU – NRMF

·         Barangay Chairman of 177 and 172

 

Introduction

 

            One of the most common problems in Caloocan City is the open drainage on the sidewalk. Whenever it rained the water in the drainage will overflow and can cause flooding in the area. The residents and some passerby are having a lot of problems whenever there is flooding due to the open drainage and the rain, they struggle a lot, especially the students since their uniforms are always getting wet because of the flood and some drivers are having a hard time whenever they pass by since the flood can damage their engine especially the motorcycle. Through this petition the residents and the stakeholders are planning to close the open drainage in Caloocan City.

 

Consequences

 

·         It can cause diseases to the residents, especially to the children. If the drainage are remained to be open a lot of diseases can be caught by the residents and children since inside the drainage there’s a lot of unsanitized trash that can cause diseases especially to the children who have low immune system.

 

·          It can continue to cause problems for the residents Whenever it rained the water in the drainage would overflow and can cause flooding, and a lot of struggles and problems especially to the residents. It can also cause accidents if a person or a vehicle would get caught inside the drainage since they don't know if the drainage is open or not.

 

Merits

 

·         It can stop the water to overflow and can decrease the possibility of having floods in the area. If ever the open drainage would get close the water will not overflow and the floods in the area would have a low possibility since the cause of the flood will get blocked.

 

·         Having different disease will have low possibility. Since the open drainage would be blocking the chances of sighting a disease would be impossible for the bacteria that came from the drainage would not damage our health anymore.

 

 

·         The struggles of the students and driver would come to end. Since the rain causes the overflow in the drainage that results in flooding, if the drainage would be close the water would not overflow and will cause floods anymore. The students and drivers would not struggle anymore because of the floods.

 

Philosophical Arguments Movement

 

            The philosophical Movements are the Environmental ethics since we must take actions to make things better, especially in our environment, the open drainage should have a solution to have a good environment since it is our responsibility to take action in problems like this.

 

Solution

 

            To stop and prevent the things that may happen if the drainage area remained open is to make a way to close all the open drainage, but it should still have some space so the flowing of water to the drainage will not be interrupted.

 

Closing Statement

 

            The open drainage can cause a lot of trouble and diseases to the residents and passerby especially to the health of children’s that are living in some area, but we can prevent it from happening if the officials will approve this petition and ordered some worker’s to close the open drainage in Caloocan City.
