Pantabangan dam and other irrigation facilities within the Upper Pampanga River Integrated Irrigation System (UPRIIS) were spared from damage by the magnitude 7.0 quake that hit most parts of northern Luzon.

This was based on the initial assessment made by the field engineers as instructed by UPRIIS department manager Rosalinda Bote, according to a Philippine News Agency report.

These facilities include Masiway Dam in Pantabangan (under Dam and Reservoir Division), Tayabo Dam in San Jose City, Torre and Cojuangco dams in Talavera, Macanae Dam in Lupao (Division I); Vaca Da in Llanera, Murcon in Talavera, Rizal Dam in Rizal (Division II), Atate and Aulo dams in Palayan City, Upper Tabuating Dam in Gen. Tinio (Division III); and Peñaranda dam in Peñaranda (Division IV).

But Bote said further site inspection and evaluation of the dam and its appurtenant structures, irrigation facilities, and office buildings along with other in-progress rehabilitation and construction of infrastructure projects, are being conducted.

“Initial analysis on data are categorized as intensity IV, perceived shaking as light,” she said in the PNA report.

Bote instructed all UPRIIS engineers to strictly monitor the dams and major irrigation facilities so as not to impede the delivery of irrigation water.
