Boil water notice persists for Agana Heights

Posted: Updated:

by Michele Catahay

A boil water notice remains 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. Officials say GWA 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.

In the meantime, Agana Heights resident Ann says it's a difficult time for some people in her neighborhood.  "I think it's really a hardship for a lot of the families, especially those with kids because they have to go through the sacrifice of not having water. With me, I'm not affected because I have a water system and I don't have to boil my water."

Residents are advised not to drink the water from the tap without first boiling the water for one minute and letting it cool.
