Discipline: Engineering, Developmental Studies



This project was conducted to assess the present condition of the drainage system at Zone 7, Vicmar Area, Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City, and to determine whether there is a need to construct a drainage system for proper disposal and collection of the wastewater and storm water.

This study contained two parts. Part 1 is thoroughly intended for research works, and part 2 contained the complete content of the Civil Engineering (CE) Project which comprises the determination of the total discharge of the waste and storm water, the determination of the sections of the structure, estimates and cost, architectural and technical drawings and construction project management .

The findings of the study revealed that when it rained, water is collected in the middle of the road. It was found out that there was no proper exit for the existing drainage and that some houses in the area had no proper waste disposal.
