$4M in stimulus funding goes to Guam's water systems

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

The U.S. Environmental Protection agency has awarded Guam close to $4,000,000 via American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding, that will help improve the island's aging water and wastewater infrastructure. Acting USEPA Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest, Laura Yoshii says the funding will allow Guam to identify its highest water infrastructure priorities, protect human health and surface water quality, address climate change, and create critical green jobs as a foundation for a sustainable future.

$1.8 million will go for wastewater construction, while $2.1 million will be used to improve the island's drinking water system.
