Guam - The Consolidated Commission on Utilities officially introduced new Guam Waterworks Authority general manager Martin Roush, who was previously the agency's chief engineer. Roush has been critical to developing solutions to the stipulated order projects and was involved in the most pressing issues that face the utility. 

The CCU signed a three-year, $145,000 a year contract with Roush who brings with him more than two decades of experience in public works, water utilities and wastewater utilities.  He just returned from a trip to Japan where he discussed with JBIC and the Ministry of Defense representatives the environmental issues related the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of infrastructure upgrades the Japanese government will pay for on Guam.

"They're helping us put together the RFP. GWA will lead the request for proposal process for the northern district treatment plant. We're the lead but they've offered to help us put together the technical specifications and provide whatever assistance GWA needs in that," Roush said. He added says he looks forward to this new challenge and intends to take GWA to the next level in improving customer service and efficiency.

He officially takes over as GM next week Monday while the agency says it will begin the search for a new chief engineer immediately.
