PUC continues inquiry into GWA system charge

Posted: Updated:

The Public Utilities Commission discussed the Guam Waterworks Authority's System Development Charge during its meeting Friday night. According to PUC Legal Counsel Fred Horecky, the board was presented with the charges and how GWA came up with those numbers.

He says it could cost an average homebuilder approximately $5,400 for water and wastewater infrastructure. The board did not take final action on it due to the fact that members felt it necessary to review the presented information. Horecky says they may bring back the issue during its meeting in December.

In the meantime, the board also authorized an investigation to be launched into the Port Authority of Guam's rates and tariffs. He says Port officials have said in order to revamp its facilities for the upcoming military buildup, they may need to raise rates.
