Wharf closes due to structural deterioration

by Nick Delgado

Guam - A deterioration of the structure is what forced Guam Port Authority officials to shut down operations at its F-5 Wharf. Port General Manager Pedro Leon Guerrero says they noticed the issue during a recent underwater inspection resulting in their insurance company requiring preventative measures to reduce the risk of further damage.

The wharf is now closed off, as he says they will be conducting further studies to determine what repairs need to be made. Leon Guerrero adds that its business as usual for the port, saying, "We're going to continue to operate this is a temporary thing in nature so once we get the assessment then we will definitely evaluate and we will let people know and we'll know what's the next step."

Leon Guerrero says they are in communication with the coast guard on the matter. The review of the wharf is expected to be complete in two weeks.
