Several areas in Metro Manila and nearby places suffered from water shortage last March 10.

Following this, the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) assured consumers that their public plans will be able to sustain the demand for the next 5 to 10 years.

However, netizen Angel Salazar, who introduced herself as a former employee of MWSS, exposed an alleged anomaly in the agency.

According to her, the MWSS Regulatory Board ordered the closure of La Mesa dam which resulted in the water shortage.

Chief Regulator Patrick Ty denied this but Salazar explained the system inside the MWSS because she said she managed the headworks for several years.

A recent report stated that President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the release of water from Angat Dam.

“The President will personally go to them and make the responsible officers account for such failure,”  Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo stated.

He added, “I said it could be just inefficiency, mismanagement. In that case, it’s only an artificial shortage because if the source is full and another concessionaire is also full.

In line with the water shortage, PAG-ASA released data showing the levels of water in dams continue to decrease.

Here is the data.
