Press Release
Angat Dam situation and its effect in water supply

July 11, 2019

Angat Dam level is at 159.93 meters as of six o’clock in the morning today. It is down from 160.30 meters same time yesterday. Such level is now again below 160 meters, the elevation critical for water supply. The Low Level Outlet (LLO) is currently operational to maintain the current allocation of 36 cubic meters per second or around 3.1 billion liters per day.

Based from PAGASA projections, the prevailing weakened southwest monsoon or Habagat resulted in the absence of significant rainfall in the Angat Dam and Angat Watershed. However, it is projected that the monsoon rains will be present next week. It is our hope that the monsoon rains and the forecasted tropical cyclones this month will come earlier to help in the early recovery of Angat Dam.

The public can support our efforts in preserving the water in Angat Dam by enhancing our water conservation initiatives like harvesting and recycling rainwater pouring in Metro Manila. This can be used in non-essential activities such as watering plants and car washing. Responsible use of water is equally important to ease the water demand from Angat dam and aid in its recovery.
