Guam – The Guam Waterworks Authority has made better progress than expected on getting a water main break in Merizo fixed.
This morning an emergency water outage was declared in the Village because a water line that broke yesterday [Thursday] and was repaired, broke again.
The outage forced the cancellation of school at Merizo Elementary today.
The initial estimate for completing repairs was expected to be about 8 pm tonight.
But GWA Spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf says the break had been fixed as of 4 pm this afternoon.
Water service to the lower parts of the village have already been restored, but higher elevations of Merizo probably won’t have water service until 6 or 7 pm tonight.
