Guam – The Guam Waterworks Authority reports there is low to no water pressure in the higher elevated areas of Agat and Santa Rita.

GWA Spokeswoman Heidi Ballendorf says crews are working the problem and full service should be restored by 5am Friday morning. In the meantime a water tanker is available to residents at the Agat Mayor’s office.

Isolated sections of Chalan Pago are also experiencing low to no water pressure. Full restoration there is also expected by 5pm this afternoon. 

Also, heavy rains have forced the partial by-pass of the Umatac Sewer Treatment Plant, which means that un-treated sewage is flowing into the sea.  There are also reports of sewage line back-ups and manholes covers off in the villages of Inarajan, Agat and Merizo.
