GWA Gives $50 Thousand to UOG For WERI Research Projects


Guam- The Guam Waterworks Authority presented a check for $50 thousand dollars to the University of Guam’s Water Environment Research Institute this morning [Friday].


Consolidated Commission on Utilities Chairman Simon Sanchez says the grant funding is part of GWA’s annual contribution to UOG and WERI to help manage Guam’s water resources.

“WERI has been the leading research entity for our community and the region with regards to water resources and we can’t think of a better partnership to support,” said Sanchez.

UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood also says the money is a great benefit to students, research projects and the island community. Both see the funding as a good investment since GWA works closely with WERI on matters concerning our aquifer and water quality assessments.

“This specific money will be used for research projects in connection with maintaining the quality of the water on Guam, as well as also studying wastewater issues,” said Underwood.

The check presentation took place this morning at the GWA conference room in Upper Tumon.
