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. According to a press release from the Navy the water is compliant with the Safe Drinking Water Act. The military has initiated treatment procedures to return the water to its normal appearance. The timeline as to when the water is expected to clear up is indefinite as it is dependent on several factors including weather conditions.
