Water leak frustrates Agana Heights residents

Guam - Gallons of water has been leaking from what appears to be a broken water line near Nana's Store in Agana Heights. Nearby residents for two weeks have experienced low water pressure and water is streaming down the road into their yards.

Mayor Paul McDonald says he'd rather take matters into his own hands, saying, "If we are going to wait this long maybe give us the authority to hire somebody to repair it and give them (GWA) the bill, because we are paying for water and it's very expensive, and if this is the only way to get repairs made then by golly, let's hire somebody to get it repairs."

GWA crews were assessing the leak today, but no response has been provided yet about when the problem will be fixed.
