Pangasinan dads mull raps vs San Roque dam management

Manila (13 October) -- Pangasinan officials mull raps versus the management of San Roque Multi Purpose Cooperative (SRMP) in relation to the massive floods that submerged huge parts of the province last week.

Officials of the SRMP, operators of the biggest dam in Asia decided to discharge the excess water accumulated by the dam brought about by the rains dumped by storms Ondoy and Pepeng.

The dam levels rose to 286.9 meters, or 6.9 meters above normal last Wednesday prompting officials to discharge minimal water to reduce the water level on its reservoir.

Many observers have said that releasing that much of water per second that late was insensible as it would inevitably cause the already swollen Agno River to rise

The discharged water however, which was set to disperse into the Agno River caused the river to breach its banks, while joining with the already swollen river. (PIA) [top]
