Airport A/C maintenance nears completion

Guam - Things should be cooling off at the Guam International Airport soon. According to airport program coordinator Elfrieda Koshiba, the airport has been conducting maintenance of the cooling towers for several weeks. At issue she says is the calcium deposits in the system that is caused by hard water on the island. She says this results in a lengthy process to remove the calcium buildup.

While airport users have raised concern with mild temperatures in the facility, Koshiba says they've been operating on a rotational basis, taking down one cooler tower at a time to do maintenance work. She admits due to the vast size of the terminal coupled with the extremely hot weather, certain areas of the terminal will feel a bit warmer.

Koshiba says the maintenance work should be completed by tomorrow.
