Angat Dam’s water level dropped for the third straight day but is still above the critical level.

As of 6 a.m. Sunday, 7 July 2019, the water level was recorded at 161.22 meters, according to the PAGASA-Flood Forecasting and Warning Section (PAGASA-FFWS). The normal high water level (NHWL) is 210 meters.

The previous day’s level was at 161.45m.

Incessant rains brought about by Tropical Depression “Egay” managed to lift Angat’s level past the critical level on 2 July, registering 160.29m as per PAGASA-FFWS’ record

Maynilad and Manila Water’s service interruption continues as the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) has maintained daily raw water allocation at 36 cubic meters per second—down by about 5cms from the usual allocation—despite the improving level of Angat Dam.

The water level at La Mesa Dam in Quezon City also went down at 72.36m from Saturday’s 72.38m.

Angat Dam and La Mesa Dam supply are the main water source of Metro Manila and parts of Cavite and Rizal province.
