Guam - If your weekend plans have you cruising down to the beach this weekend, do keep in mind that the Guam Environmental Protection Agency has listed no fewer than 17 beaches as being too polluted for use by your and your family. Among those making the notorious roster are the Inarajan Pool, Toguan Bay, East Hagatna Bay, Talofofo Bay, Padre Palomo Park Beach and the Merizo Pier.
Additionally, West Hagatna Bay has been closed until further notice due to the nearby sewage treatment plant.
Please steer clear of all these beaches, as swimming and fishing in these waters could cause illnesses such as sore throat and diarrhea.
