Water Supply Condition in Metro Manila for Summer Revealed by NWRB
The National Water Resources Board revealed the water supply condition in Metro Manila for the upcoming summer season.
On Friday (March 5, 2021), NWRB executive director Dr. Sevillo David Jr. reported that the Metro Manila will have a sufficient supply of water for the upcoming hot dry season. Angat Dam’s water level is now at 210.28 meters, which could cover many areas during summer.
David explained that the Angat Dam’s normal water level is only 180-meter minimum level while the normal high water level is 212 meters. He claimed that the water supply will be sufficient.
“At the current level of Angat Dam, we have enough water supply that will address our needs throughout the summer,” David said.
The state regulator chief said that the dry season usually starts in March and lasts until May but PAGASA does not call it summer. Last year, almost millions of families throughout Metro Manila experience water outage after Angat Dam reached its critical level.
Metro Manila’s water companies conducted rotational supply cuts to avert the water shortage in the National Capital Region.
