Angat Dam water level dips anew
MANILA, Philippines — The water level in Angat Dam which serves as Metro Manila’s main source of water has dipped again, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Angat Dam’s water level was at 161.22 meters as of 6 a.m., Sunday – lower than the 161.45 meters recorded Saturday morning, according to the state weather bureau.
The water level in Angat Dam had earlier dipped below the dam’s critical level of 160 meters. But days of rainfall brought by Tropical Depression “Egay” and southwest monsoon helped the water level in Angat Dam increase and surpass critical level.
Despite this, Manila Water said rotational water service interruptions for its customers will persist.
“Customers may continue to experience low water pressure to no water because of emergency adjustments being undertaken due to low reservoir levels,” Manila Water said in a Facebook post.
