Guam - Residents are reminded to stay away from the waters of East Agana Bay.
Due to overflowing raw sewage, the closure remains in effect for the stretch of the beach from Padre Palomo Park to Sleepy Lagoon.
Guam Environmental Protection Agency administrator Eric Palacios reminds the public these waters are hazardous to your health as samples show bacterial levels exceeding acceptable standards by triple digits.
No harvesting or consumption of seafood from the area and no recreational activities should take place until further notice.
Swimming, fishing, or playing in unsafe waters could result in illness, especially to those with weakened immune systems.
