Guam - Due to conflicting opinions about the northern aquifer and concerns brought to light from the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, representatives from University of Guam's Water & Energy Research Institute met with stakeholders Wednesday morning. WERI gave a presentation to representatives from the Guam EPA, USEPA, the CCU, GWA, NAVFAC Marianas, NAVFAC Pacific and the U.S. Geological Survey regarding the northern aquifer and the Guam Groundwater Availability Study they will be conducting over the next three years.

The study seeks to assess the updated estimates and effects from the Guam water flow system in Northern Guam, measuring sustainable yield and whether there is enough water to go around and if the chlorides or salt water has increased over time. WERI showcased examples of modeling and timelines they have drawn up relative to next steps.

The ultimate goal is to gather data for the stake holders and determine what the yield is, where to put the wells and where new water wells must be dug.
