Guam - The erosion occurring along the shoreline in Agat was the focus of a roundtable this morning chaired by Senator Tina Muna Barnes. The meeting started with a presentation from the Bureau of Statistics & Plans illustrating the mitigation and erosion that's been occurring in Talofofo and whether similar strategies should be employed at the Nimitz Beach Park.

Agat mayor Carol Tayama and her constituents have watched the park disappear gradually. "To me we need to work fast everyday counts we need to do something now and I don't want to...because you don't see it happening who knows tomorrow morning it might just be all gone already the picnic tables are gone the shower stalls gone what next the bathrooms going to be gone. We need to act fast and do something now so that our people we need that beach."

Stakeholders including the Department of Parks & Rec and BSP are working on a timeline to determine how long the mitigation project will take. They will also be taking into account the time it will take to get the necessary permits which could run anywhere between 30 to 60 days.

The National Guard meanwhile has also agreed to provide assistance.
