Parks & Rec working to stop Agat erosion

Guam - The Department of Parks & Recreation is in communication with Coastal Management to implement mitigation efforts to stop the erosion of the Nimitz Beach Park in Agat. Facilities there are literally in the water. DPR director Pete Calvo says he has since reviewed the mitigation report from the army corps of engineers, however could not release the details.

"There's very few things we can actually do, if we do too much all we're going to cause is to push the problem down the beach and we don't want to do that of course because it just becomes another person's problem," said Calvo.

Senator Mana Silva Taijeron raised concern about the erosion after she toured the site earlier this month with Calvo and Agat mayor Carol Tayama. Calvo says they will revisit the site next month with coastal management to determine their next steps.
