PRESS RELEASE

NWRB ensures sufficient water supply from Angat dam during dry season
April 1, 2021

The National Water Resources Board (NWRB), upon the recommendation of the members of the Technical Working Group (TWG) on Angat Dam, approved sufficient water to MWSS and NIA in the months of April and May to address the water requirements of the demand increase during the dry season and to support safety and hygiene measures against COVID-19.

As of 6am this morning, the elevation is at 206.05 meters which is less than four meters above normal high water level (NHWL). Based on the PAGASA’s climate outlook and in consideration of the stakeholders’ water requirements, NWRB projections show that there is sufficient water in the Angat dam to sustain water demand through the months of April, May and June where warmer temperatures are expected to be caused by the prevailing dry season.
The NWRB expects that water consumption will relatively increase considering the hotter months ahead and the current COVID-19 situation in the country. However, the public is reminded once again, to responsibly use the available water resources especially during this critical period where water is exceptionally valuable. NWRB also encourages the public to apply practical and hygienic means of recycling water and harvest rainwater whenever possible.
The TWG is regularly meeting to constantly assess the water situation in Angat dam to ensure that sufficient water is available in the coming months.
