Press Statement
Increase in water allocation to MWSS from 46 CMS to 48 CMS

The National Water Resources Board (NWRB) increased the allocation of MWSS from 46 cubic meters per second (CMS) to 48 CMS starting today May 14 until the end of May 2020.

The additional 2 CMS raw water allocation from Angat Dam is considered as a special requirement due to the relatively high heat index in the month of May which results in higher water demand of consumers in Metro Manila and adjacent provinces of Bulacan, Rizal and Cavite.

The increased allocation is also to sustain the steady supply of water in performing preventive measures against the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) such as frequent handwashing and other hygiene, cleaning and disinfection activities.

NWRB reiterates its call to the Filipino people to continue the responsible use and conservation of water. With the entry of typhoon “Ambo” and frequent thunderstorms being experienced in some parts of the country, it is encouraged to the public to practice rainwater harvesting and recycle or reuse this water for more beneficial use.

Conserving water will help secure our water requirements in the succeeding months and for the Angat Dam to recover to a more comfortable level by the end of the year.
