National Water Resources Board (NWRB) Executive Director Sevillo David said that the rain showers due to the southwest monsoon helped boost the dam’s water level.

Angat Dam’s water level, however, is still 19 meters short of its normal operating level, and 48 meters short of the normal high water level.
