Angat dam surpassed 200 meters in 2020
January 2, 2020

With the help of typhoon Tisoy and the recent northeast monsoon rains, Angat dam’s midnight elevation in December 31, 2019 reached 201.65 meters. It keeps on rising as it is reported that as of 6:00 in the morning today, the level is at 202.60 meters.

Although the water level is still below the normal high water level (NHWL) of 212 meters, this significant increase will help stretch ample water supply for Metro Manila and its neighboring provinces until the next rainy season comes.
Water allocation for the month of January 2020 is 40 cubic meters per second (cms) for Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) while 10 cms for National Irrigation Administration (NIA). The reduction of allocation from its normal number is a management measure to ensure that water supply is sustained in the critical summer months this year.
The government is working steadfastly to efficiently manage the limited water resources. Angat dam is constantly monitored by the Technical Working Group composed of NWRB, PAGASA, MWSS, NIA and National Power Corporation (NPC).
A campaign dubbed as Oplan Tubig Para sa Kinabukasan led by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and Metro Manila Council (MMC) to promote sustainable use of water is supported by DENR, NWRB, DILG and MWSS. All efforts are being exhausted to minimize the possible adverse impacts of the situation we are confronting.
The public is asked for its contribution and help to use water responsibly. Simple water conservation measures that can save at least one liter a day equate to unutilized water in Angat dam.
