Guam waterworks spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf, however, says GMH did make a $250,000 payment Friday so their agreement will stand.

Guam – While the Guam Memorial Hospital was able to make a $250,000 payment Friday on their delinquent water bill, the Guam Power Authority says they haven’t received a dime.

GPA spokesperson Art Perez says no payments were made by GMH Friday toward their outstanding power bill of about $540,000 and they could still face disconnection at the end of the month. Guam waterworks spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf, however, says GMH did make a $250,000 payment Friday so their agreement will stand. That agreement came at the eleventh hour Thursday and a water crisis was averted when Adelup officials were able to reach an agreement with both utility agencies that they would pay at least half of what’s due immediately and the remaining balance within three months. GWA threatened to shut off water Thursday if payment wasn’t made by Wednesday. GPA says the hospital has until the 29 to make a payment or their power will be cut off.
