Chalan Pago battles water problems

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Approximately 25 homes in the higher elevated areas of Chalan Pago are experiencing low-to-no water pressure. Guam Waterworks Authority Spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf says the utility agency is having trouble with full restoration in the Chalan Kaka area. She says crews have been working in the area to restore water for the past several weeks.

Ballendorf told KUAM News, "I had hoped that we would have been able to get this situation taken care of by the end of May, and I apologize and I have not done an update because I've been hoping that any day now, it would be resolved. This situation has been exacerbated by two things: one, there's construction going on there-again there's ten and four."

Ballendorf says she remains hopeful that the issue will be resolved in the next several days. She says crews are tying in the two-inch line to an eight-inch pipe to ensure water issues there are resolved.
