Due to this, the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) is aiming to cut water allocations. According to NWRB Executive Director Sevillo David Jr., they want to manage the water supply in case the water level will not reach 212 meters by the end of the year.

“In order to manage iyong supply ngayon just in case na hindi ganoon ka-favorable iyong mga rainfall na darating sa Angat watershed (In order to manage the current supply in case there will be no favorable rainfall at Angat watershed),” he said.

According to PAGASA, rainfalls are still expected in Angat Dam area before the end of the year.

“Pagpasok ng November may mga dalawang bagyo tayong inaasahan diyan (By November, we are expecting two more typhoons),” weather specialist Edgar dela Cruz said.

The NWRB said they plan to conduct cloud seeding operation but that will only slightly increase the water level at Angat Dam.

Meanwhile, the NWRB will launch a campaign for responsible water consumption by November.—AAC (with reports from Rey Pelayo)

MANILA, Philippines — Maynilad Water Services on Tuesday evening (November 17) advised its customers to prepare for a 7-day intermittent water service from November 18 to 24.

In an advisory, the firm said high turbidity in raw water caused the sludge or mud to build up in its basins.

Maynilad said it has to treat poor quality water first hence the need for a longer service interruption period.
