Angat water level finally rises

Published

It’s still below the critical level but the water level at Angat Dam finally increased on Sunday, aided by continuous rainfall the past week.

As of 6 a.m. of 30 June, Angat’s level was recorded at 158.64 meters, up from the previous day’s 157.96. It dropped below the critical level of 160m on 22 June.

Water service interruption will persist though as it would take about three months of rainfall for the dam to reach the normal high water level of 210m, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Tropical Depression “Egay” will enhance the southwest monsoon (habagat) on Sunday and hopefully bring rains that water reservoirs badly need before it exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

La Mesa Dam’s level also increased to 71.50m from 70.95m. The dam that supplies water to Metro Manila’s east zone is still a long way to go to reach the 80.15 normal level.
