MANILA, Philippines – Angat Dam’s water level increased by four meters following nonstop rains brought about by Typhoon Tisoy.

As of 6:00 AM on Wednesday (December 4), Angat’s water level is at 193.47 meters after catching an additional 4.50 meters overnight.

State weather agency PAGASA earlier projected that Angat Dam might possibly increase by up to 9 meters from the volume of rains that Typhoon Tisoy might bring but only half of the expected volume was added.

To fully replenish Angat Dam’s reserve, it has to hit 212 meters.

Meanwhile, Ipo Dam and La Mesa Dams also recorded increase in water level with 101.20 meters and 77.55 meters, respectively as of this morning.

Despite this slight increase, allocations in Metro Manila remain limited and water service interruptions by concessionaires are still in effect. MNP (with inputs from Rey Pelayo)
