RAMON, Isabela –– The Magat Dam here has been discharging 200 cubic meters per second of water through a meter-long gate opening in anticipation of heavy rainfall caused by Typhoon “Bising.”

As of Wednesday noon, the reservoir was at 189.36 meters above sea level (masl), according to Engineer Carlo Ablan, acting dam and reservoir division manager of the National Irrigation Administration-Magat River Integrated Irrigation System.
