Water board hopes for heavy rains soon in Angat !-- -- MANILA, Philippines Officials of the National Water Resources Board (NWRB
) expressed hope that heavy rains would start soon in Central Luzon to replenish the dwindling water level in Angat Dam in Bulacan caused by the long dry spell.
Last June 1, NWRB
reduced the allocation to Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System-of raw water that Manila Water and Maynilad treat to produce potable water-from the normal 48 cubic meters per second (cms) to 46 cms on account of the continuing decrease of the level in Angat.
said that since Wednesday, allocation for Metro Manila's water concessionaires was already reduced from the original 46 cubic meters per second to 40 CMS.
Prior to the OP decision, Boracay Tubi and Boracay Water had been separately supervised and regulated by NWRB
and Tieza, respectively.
Arroyo, the first woman Speaker, counted on the officials of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage Systems (MWSS), National Water Resources Bureau (NWRB
), LWUA, and National Irrigation Authority (NIA) to attend the hearing on Tuesday at 10 am.
On Monday, June 17, the NWRB
urged Metro Manila consumers to save water as the reserve level was expected to breach the critical mark.
This, after the NWRB
decided to slash the water allocation for Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System from the current 46 cubic meters per second to 40 cms.
On June 11 operatives of the NWRB
, with support from Task Force DENR Enforcers Metro Manila and the Philippine National Police, swooped down on the company's premises and discovered the deep wells, all found to be without necessary permits.
To conserve the stock, the NWRB
reduced the raw water allocation for Metro Manila, forcing the two private distributors to announce earlier this week rotating service interruptions.
said the cut in water allocation is needed to fine-tune the preparation of the low-level outlet of Angat Dam as back-up water discharge and to lessen the effect of limited water supply in the coming days.
