Armed with the usual cleaning implements like shovels, walis tingting, and rakes, employees of the city government, men and women in uniform, barangay government personnel, and other volunteers such as scholars of the city gathered once again for the community canal clean-up — Limpyo Kalog.
Limpyo Kalog is held quarterly where volunteers are assigned their area of canals to clean.
The usual spots for clean-up are the waterways surrounding the city hall compound and the roundabout area, and the barangay canal networks.
This activity aims to unclog the waterway system of debris, trash, and other pollutants that otherwise may contribute to flooding and mosquito breeding.
Due to the pandemic, this activity was temporarily halted last year.
