Luzon Dams again under control
Of the 9 dams in Luzon, 8 have closed their gates. Their water levels are between 10 centimeters overflow (Magat dam) and 18.9 meters below overflow (Pantabagan dam).
We therefore did remove our flood warning for now.
It’s a really difficult job to manage the dam filling. If the water level is too low, fresh water supply for Luzon and Metro Manila is not guaranteed. Electrical power supply might be interrupted when the turbines do not get enough water.
But on the other hand the situation can become very critical when gates have to be opened and people living downstream get flooded.
Here is the situation of this morning:
