RED CROSS WATER TANKERS READY FOR WATER SHORTAGE IN METRO MANILA

According to Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon, PRC is ready in case of water shortage in Metro Manila. The National Water Resources Board (NWRB) projects that Metro Manila may experience a water shortage by April or May, as Angat Dam levels continue to decline.

According to NWRB Executive Director Sevillo D. David, Jr. in a radio-television interview, “The level of Angat Dam is already at 196 meters. The ideal level would be somewhere past 200 meters.” “We are (trying to avoid) reaching 180 meters, which is the minimum operating level. But based on the projections and rainfall forecasts, we may reach this in April or May,” he added.

“Mayroon ang Red Cross ng 22 water tankers at 31 water treatment unit na handang tumulong kung magkaroon ng water shortage. Sa kasalukuyan ay naka deploy ito sa Palawan, Visayas , at Mindanao at patuloy pa rin ang pagbibigay ng malinis na tubig sa mga naapektuhan ng Bagyong Odette,” Gordon said.

Since the start of Typhoon Odette operations last December 2021, PRC has provided more than 9,749,873 liters of clean and potable water to the affected residents.
