Parks & Rec takes aim at Agat erosion

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Parks & Recreation is in communication with Guam 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 he was unable to release the details.

Republican freshman senator Mana Silva Taijeron also raised concern about the park, telling KUAM News, "We know that a seawall would not be a good option because all it would do is divert the erosion further down, so we have to weigh what sort of solutions we can come up with."

Taijeron says she will be taking another tour with Parks & Rec and Coastal Management on February 16 to identify what mitigation efforts can be done.
