LA MESA DAM WATER LEVELS BACK TO NORMAL
The water level in the La Mesa Dam is now back to normal, after it dipped to “code red” status since Thursday.
The dam’s reservoir water level was at 79.38 as of 6 a.m. on Saturday—up by nearly 1 meter from Friday and Thursday’s 78.4 meters.
The normal water level of the La Mesa reservoir is from 79 to 80 meters. Anything below or above this range would merit a “code red” status, said Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration hydrologist Richard Orendain in a phone interview on Saturday.
Orendain said the increase may have been caused by the approval of a requested “inflow” from the Ipo Dam, which in turn gets an inflow from the Angat Dam.
