A boil water notice is in effect for residents living in Agana Heights. The Guam Waterworks Authority found a hole in the chlorination system hose which has since been repaired. GWA Laboratory Administrator Carmen Denton says the utility agency is conducting testing throughout the weekend and will continue to impose the boil water notice until they receive results that show the water is free of contaminants.
Fecal coliform or e. Coli bacteria was found in the water supply samples taken yesterday in the Agana Heights area. Residents are advised not to drink the water from the tap without first boiling the water for one minute and letting it cool.
Agana Heights residents should use bottled water or boil water before using for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and preparing food. The problem was noted at Well A-31.
Residents in Agana Heights are urged to continue to boil their water until further notice.
