On January 15, 2009, the HWR 4th year students went on a field trip for the subject, RICOSEN (River and Coastal Engineering) under Dr. Danilo Terante. They went to the Flood Control and Sabo Engineering Center in Pasig City. This is the center where they control the flow of water through Pasig River. This is also the place where various experiments regarding water flow in the Lahar area in Pampanga and other river systems are being conducted.
Most if not all of the apparatus in the center are also available back in La Salle, but the difference is that they are way much bigger than the one’s in school; the students were awed to actually fit inside these apparatus. One student even joked about having a shower party in the gigantic Rainfall Simulator Apparatus. Report by Carbert Lee.
