ARAYAT, Pampanga -- An official of an irrigators' association here assailed the National Irrigation Administration for using the agency's newly released 60-million-peso fund to pay off debts to contractors, including a firm owned by a legislator, instead of settling the land claims of at least 816 farmers.

Adjacent to Mount Arayat, across Pampanga River, just on the eastern side is the Candaba swamp, covering an area of some 300 sq.
At the lower sections of the basin, where the Pampanga delta lies, the Pampanga River system divide into relatively small branches, crisscrossed with fishponds to form a network of sluggish, tidal flats and canals, which eventually find their way to Manila Bay.
With the anticipated completion of the Pampanga Delta Project (DPWH), it is expected that floodflows at the lower section of the Pampanga River will recede at a much faster rate than before.
