Guam - In honor of her commitment to community service, the Consolidated Commission on Utilities passed a resolution Thursday night to name the Guam Waterworks Authority and Guam Power Authority's consolidated office building set to be built in Mangilao after the last Gloria Nelson. Nelson, who passed away two weeks ago after a long battle with cancer, was a member of the CCU.

The CCU meanwhile approved two contracts - a $6.3 million contract with DCK to rebuild a Barrigada reservoir that had failed a few years ago and was part of a court order repair project, and a $4.1 million contract to Black Construction and Veolia to upgrade the electrical work in seven waste water pump stations and two waste water treatment plants.

The CCU will reconvene Thursday, November 1 at 12pm.
