Tiyan homes to get water meters

Guam - In January the Guam Waterworks Authority will start installing water meters to all Tiyan landowners who currently pay a flat fee close to $70 a month. GWA spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf says this is good news as there may have been water lost from not accounting for these homes.

"Of course, revenue is always an issue," she noted, "but I think another big issue for us is water loss and not accounting for the water that's being used I think that's really important that we account for all of our water."

The agency has already contacted over 100 Tiyan homeowners about the meter installation program and are inviting them to a open house on December 5 at the Barrigada Community Center to meet the engineer and operations crew that will be responsible for the project.  Tiyan homeowners will not be charged for the meters themselves.
