Rains from Typhoon Ursula have boosted the water level in Angat Dam but is still short of the 212-meter target to ensure ample water supply for Metro Manila residents, the National Water Resources Board said.

NWRB Executive Director Sevillo David Jr. said if the target is not achieved by the end of this year, the current rotational water interruption will persist until summer next year as the current allocation of 40 cubic meters will likely remain.

Farmers have already been informed of reduced allocation for irrigation if the water level at Angat Dam stays at the 200-meter level.
