NWRB: Recent rains improved Luzon dams’ water levels

The recent inclement weather improved the water levels of major dams in Luzon, the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) said on Monday.

“Ito pong Bagyong Egay at may nauna nga po yung Bagyong Dodong ay nagdulot po ng mga pag-ulan, nakapagpataas po ng lebel ng mga major dams natin partikular po dito sa Luzon Island,” NWRB chief Dr. Sevillo David Jr. said in a televised public briefing.

(Tropical Cyclones Egay and Dodong caused rains which increased the water levels of major dams, particularly those in Luzon Island.)

“Malaki po ang naitulong nitong pag-ulan sa kasalukuyang sitwasyon natin na pag-recharge po ng mga dam natin,” he added.

(These rains were a big help for our situation by recharging our dams.)

Earlier, the NWRB warned of a possible water shortage due to the effects of the El Niño phenomenon. The agency announced a cut in the water supply allocation to conserve water in light of the El Niño.
