Remember those drainage inlets at the sidewalks, those ground-level
horizontal holes that allow water to flow from the streets into underground culverts? Well, they are now a thing of the past in the MCBD. Alerted to the fact that the open inlets were serving as ingress-egress points for rodents at night, the MaCEA management immediately verified the information and, finding it to be true, decided to address the problem, head on and at once.
The holes have been attached with closely spaced steel grills that rodents
can’t pass through. As of the end of June, 223 inlets had been fixed: 117
in Legazpi Village and 106 in Salcedo Village.
