• Angat dam rehab to start in July


    THE rehabilitation of Angat dam in Bulacan will start its rehabilitation in July. Geungjeon Han, president of K-Water and Angat HydroPower Corp., said they will award the contract for the project by end of this month. He said at least three construction firms, including two locals and one foreign, have already expressed interest to do the rehabilitation. Stefan Ehlers, Civil Engineer at Poyry, said based on their recommendation, the rehabilitation should be completed by the middle of 2017. During his presentation, Ehlers said there is no guarantee that the dam could withstand the 7.2 magnitude earthquake if it would happen before the rehabilitation is completed.
