"H2-uh-Oh" for southern, central villages

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Waterworks Authority reports more water issues for central and southern residents. Residents in Chalan Kaka, the upper elevations of Chalan Pago, Pago Bay, parts of Yona, and the upper elevations of Talofofo will continue to have low water pressure problems until May 31.

Water officials say the operations and engineering department in cooperation with the Department of Public Works will be doing a tie-in to an eight-inch water line tomorrow, which is expected to add challenges to several deep wells servicing these areas. Crews will be working on increasing water production from these wells.

Other areas with water problems include parts of Yona, Talofofo, Route 17, Malojloj, Inarajan, Merizo, Umatac, and the upper elevations of Santa Rita.  GWA officials report that the Ugum Water Treatment Plant continues to have production problems and is only working at 50% capacity. Crews and contractors are working to regain tank levels, which service those areas, and full restoration is hoped by Saturday the 29th.

Tankers are being stationed across from St Joe's in Inarajan, Umatac Subdivision, Merizo Mayor's office, Upper Santa Ana (near the Trans World Tower), and also Chalan Kakka.

Residents are being asked to only use water for essential water uses.
