MANILA, Philippines – East Zone concessionaire Manila Water Company Inc. hinted at the possibility of implementing rotational water service interruptions as the water level in Angat dam continues to drop despite recent rains.

In an advisory posted on Facebook Sunday, the Manila Water said the Angat dam level has further dipped and is nearing the critical level of 160 meters.

As of 6 a.m. on Monday (June 17), Angat’s water level is at 162.39 meters.

“As a result, Manila Water may need to make further operational adjustments affecting water supply for our customers,” the Manila Water said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) has declared the start of the rainy season last week.

But even with the recent rains, according to Manila Water, the water level at the Angat Dam remains low.

If this continues, the company said it may be forced to implement contingency measures to manage the limited water supply.

“Maaari po kaming magpatupad muli ng mga ‘rotational water service interruptions’ sa buong East zone,” its advisory read.

The National Water Resources Board (NWRB) earlier announced it has reduced the allocation for Metro Manila from 48 cubic meters per second to 46 CBS for the month of June due to lower water levels at Angat Dam.

With the dwindling water supply, consumers were advised to brace for possible water interruptions.

The Manila Water expressed hope that the situation will improve once there is enough rainwater to fill up dams.

It also assured to regularly post updates on water supply condition on its social media accounts.

West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc., for its part, said it also implemented water interruptions from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. when water usage is usually low.

The limited water supply will especially affect consumers in elevated areas.

by Marje Pelayo   |   Posted on Monday, July 15th, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Water level in Angat Dam remains below the critical level on Monday (July 15) despite rainshowers in the past days.

As of 6:00 a.m., Angat Dam has 158.74 meters, still below the critical level of 160 meters and way below its normal operating level of 180 meters.

On its Facebook page, concessionaire Manila Water on Monday announced continuous implementation of rotational water interruptions due to the current state of Angat Dam.

“Ang mga service interruption na ito ay ginagawa para maipamahagi ang limitadong suplay ng tubig sa lahat ng aming mga customer, dahil nananatiling mas mababa ang alokasyon mula sa NWRB dala ng muling pagbaba ng antas ng Angat Dam,” Manila Water said on its post.

(This service interruptions aim to evenly distribute the limited supply of water to all our customers because allocation from NWRB remains low due to below critical level of water in Angat Dam.)

Meanwhile, Maynilad also said it was cutting water supply as it continues to fine-tune its distribution given the reduced raw water releases from Angat Dam.

“We encourage our affected customers to store enough water when supply is available,” Maynilad posted.
