Guam - Consolidated Commission on Utilities chairman Simon Sanchez says he's pleased with the House Armed Services Committee's passage of the Fiscal Year 2011 National Defense Authorization Act.  Sanchez said, "The CCU and Guam Waterworks Authority have long advocated the unification of the GWA and Navy water and wastewater systems into a single system that serves both the people of Guam and the U.S. military equally well." 

The Housed Armed Services Committee began the process of returning the island's water resources to the people of Guam.  Sanchez adds the transfer will not occur overnight, adding, "The CCU remains confident that the transfer can be successfully completed in the same way that the navy transferred all its power assets to the Guam Power Authority nearly 20 years ago."

The National Defense Authorization Act must still receive approval from Congress and President Barack Obama.
