Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency has released the third batch of results from testing of water samples in Mangilao and Barrigada.

According to a press release the latest laboratory samples analyzed by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency today indicate there is no longer E. coli in the water system in Mangilao. The findings were generated from samples taken on Saturday in these villages, as well as at multiple points throughout the island.

The press release added however that for the third consecutive day, there remained the presence of Total Coliform in water systems in Mangilao and Barrigada, so the agency is maintaining its boil water notices for these villages.

Guam EPA collected samples again today and will continue to test the drinking water in Mangilao and Barrigada every day and until the samples return without contamination for two consecutive days.

 "I thank my Water Quality Response Team — Jerry Aquino, Carmencita Cortez, Ed Ibay, Angel Marquez, Arlene Paulino, Rudy Paulino, Tammy Jo Taft and Edelisa Yanit — for working diligently, tirelessly and competently through this process,” Guam EPA administrator Eric M. Palacios said.
