Guam - Calling it a historic increase of over $34 million in wastewater and drinking water infrastructure funding, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency significantly bumped up the amount of federal dollars it's providing to Guam, the CNMI and American Samoa.  From a half-million, Guam will instead get $8 million for wastewater infrastructure.

As for drinking water infrastructure, previously Guam received $900,000 - this time it's $5.1 million.

In total, Guam is getting $13 million that will go to drinking water and water quality protection projects such as wastewater treatment, protection of drinking water sources, and improvements to water storage and distribution facilities.
