SN Aboitiz Power-Benguet, the National Power Corporation (NPC), and the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM) held the annual public information drive on the Ambuklao and Binga Dams and Reservoir Operations.
The info drive, now on its fourth year, notifies LGUs and residents of communities downstream of Ambuklao and Binga about the annual spillway gate reliability testing. Around 300 community residents attended the activity that refreshed their knowledge on dam operations, including safety, flood forecasting and warning, and SNAP’s emergency action plan.
SNAP-Benguet, NPC, and PSALM are part of a technical working group that ensures the safe and reliable operations of the Ambuklao and Binga dams. The dams remain government-owned while the hydropower plants are operated by SNAP-Benguet.
