BAMBANG, Nueva Vizcaya: With the Magat Dam reservoir water level reaching its spilling level, the National Irrigation Administration-Magat River Integrated Irrigation System (NIA-Mariis) has warned residents along the banks of the Magat River to move to higher places as the dam releases water. The heavy downpour brought by Typhoon “Ulysses” pushed the water level of Magat Dam beyond normal, NIA-Mariis said. According to NIA-Mariis, the water level rose to 192.65 meters, which is .35 meters close to its spilling level of 193 as of 2:00 p.m. on Thursday. The reservoir inflow is at 6,044 cubic meters per second (cms) and outflow at 3,692 cms with all of Magat Dam’s seven spillway gates opened at 18 meters.
