Guam - The Guam Waterworks Authority has restarted the smoke testing program in the central villages of Chalan Pago, Sinajana, and Mongmong-Toto-Maite. The agency had experienced some internal problems which have been resolved. According to GWA spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf, the smoke is harmless, odorless and is conducted to identify missing sewer connections and or cracked pipes as well as illegal sewer hookups.

Smoke testing began today in Chalan Pago and will continue on Friday in Sinajana and Mongmong-Toto-Maite from 8am to 4pm.
