Guam - If you frequent East Agana Bay, be advised. The Department of Public Health and Social Services and the Guam Environmental Protection Agency have closed the stretch from Dungca's Beach all the way to Padre Palomo Park.
Guam EPA administrator Eric Palacios says the closure is a result of overflowing manholes depositing untreated sewage into the bay. Samples show bacterial levels above unacceptable standards.
No harvesting or consumption of seafood from the area and no recreational activities should take place until further notice.
