Guam - If you're a resident who receives water from the Fena Reservoir, even though it may be brownish in tint, Naval Base Guam maintains it is still safe to drink. The discoloration is attributed to a rise in turbidity which is caused by large amounts of runoff that has been pouring into the reservoirs from the recent storm.

The timeline as to when the water is expected to clear up is indefinite as it is dependent on several factors including weather conditions.
