Erosion Threatens Parking Lot of Pacific War Museum


Guam – The parking lot in front of the late John Gerber’s Pacific War Museum is washing away.

A diversionary pipe in the jungle up the hill from the Museum has clogged frequently in recent months during the heavy rain fall.

The water has backed up and over-flowed into the parking lot. The heavy flow has eroded the ground under the pavement and broken-it up in various spots.

The Museum operators say they have contacted DPW about getting the drainage pipes cleaned out or having a back-hoe create a by-pass trench.

But DPW says the property is not under their jurisdiction.  So Museum operators say they’re hoping to find a contractor to volunteer to clear the clogged pipes and save the parking lot and Museum from any further damage.
