MANILA - Magat and Binga dams gates were opened on Wednesday after their water levels breached the normal elevations due to rains spawned by the southwest monsoon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

As of 6 a.m. Wednesday, one gate of Magat Dam in Isabela was opened by two meters when its water level rose to 192.92 meters which was beyond its normal level of 190 meters.

Binga Dam in Benguet opened one gate by 0.6 meter as its water level reached 574.61 meters, a little below its spilling level of 575 meters.

Binga dam's water flows downstream to the San Roque dam in Pangasinan which can, however, contain the water spillage.

San Roque dam's water level stood at 273.87 meters as of 6 a.m., or below its normal 280-meter level.

The improved weather conditions have kept waters of La Mesa dam in Novaliches, Quezon City at its normal level at 79.11.

The Ipo dam water remained below its spilling level of 100.80 meters and though water at Angat dam exceeded its normal level of 210 as it reached 211 meters, its gates remained closed.

Water levels of Pantabangan dam in Nueva Ecija, Caliraya dam in Laguna, and the Ambuklao dam in Benguet where either below or at normal levels.
