Initial situation

Las Ceibas river is in the Huila department at the center of the country and is the main water provider to department capital's distribution system. During the rainy seasons debris and avalanche flows are triggered. These phenomena fed by the blocks and soil placed in the riverbank, put in danger nearby populations and the city's distribution system.
