GHURA replacing waste water line for housing

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - The Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority just recently received $1.3 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to extend the economic life of its housing units. According to GHURA Acting Director Michael Duenas, the annual grant is used to do repair work from changing out kitchen cabinets and windows to installing storm shutters on GHURA's 750 housing units - many of which are 30 to 40 years old.

He said, "We are looking at replacing the waste water line that connects the dwelling units to the sewer collector lines out on the main road. These are housing units we have in Agat and couple of other southern neighborhoods where the lines have failed and we're looking at about having to replace the lines for about 75 of the dwelling units there."

Duenas adds that GHURA will also use the grant to paint the exterior of 100 dwelling units in the southern developments and upgrade the electrical systems in 30 other units. GHURA will prepare and publish the bid forms between now to October for these projects.
