The Bacolod City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office and the Mambuloc clearing team have started a massive excavation and dredging of the Mambuloc creek with the use of the newly acquired Hidromek Amphibious Excavator.

The deployment of the amphibious excavator also aims to address the unimaginable garbage accumulation in the creek due to improper disposal.
