GWA: Jonestown Emergency Water Outage Extended Until 6 pm SATURDAY


Guam – The Guam Waterworks Authority has extended an emergency water outage effecting ALL of Jonestown until SATURDAY night at 6 pm.


The outage began about 4:30 FRIDAY. However, GWA’s Heidi Ballendorf reports that crews have encountered a unique problem. A resident has apparently built a wall around an above ground portion of GWA’s water line.

And due to the nature of the location and the size of the pipe GWA has had difficulty in making repairs to the broken 6-inch water main break.

Water tankers are positioned in front of the 4 towers on the cliff side near the hospital.

For more information on the outage, contact GWA’s 24/7 phone line at 646-4211
