Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 16) — East zone concessionaire Manila Water on Sunday warned of possible rotational service interruptions as the water level in Angat Dam dips near critical levels.

As of 6:00 a.m., the water level in the reservoir is at 162.78 meters, just two meters shy of the 160-meter critical mark.

"As a result, Manila Water may need to make further operational adjustments affecting water supply for our customers," it said in a statement.

In March, customers of Manila Water in Metro Manila and Rizal experienced week-long water shortages. The concessionaire had attributed the lack of supply to La Mesa Dam water levels sinking below the critical mark.
