State of Angat Dam and Water Supply Situation

July 3, 2019

The Angat dam water level as of six o’clock in the morning today is 161.08 meters, a little over three meters higher than the insofar lowest elevation this year. It is steadily recovering due to the run-off brought by the heavy rains received in the Angat area over the weekend.

However, the Technical Working Group on Angat Dam Reservoir Operations maintains the allocation of 36 cubic meters per second (CMS) to MWSS for domestic water supply in Metro Manila for July. This is because the current level is still relatively low and far from the minimum operating water level (MOWL) of 180 meters. Weakening of the southwest monsoon this week until July 16 that will bring less rainfall as reported by PAGASA is also being considered.

Maintaining the said allocation for July is one way to manage the water deposit from Angat dam and secure the requirement of both domestic and irrigation uses for the rest of the year. Should the elevation continue to rise in a comfortable level, the allocation will be adjusted accordingly.

It is a priority of the technical working group composed of NWRB, MWSS and its concessionaires, NIA, NPC, and AHC, to sustainably manage the water in Angat dam to ensure that the year-end elevation is sufficient to supply the multi-requirements on domestic supply, irrigation and energy at least until the first half of 2020.
