Guam EPA and Guam Waterworks Authority personnel will be evaluating the water and wastewater system on Thursday, July 31. Updates about the system will be provided online at http://epa.guam.gov and through the Governor’s Facebook page.

During the last major typhoon the water system was unstable.  This time was remarkably different.  Thanks to the improvements in infrastructure and the vigilance and diligence from GWA crews working during this storm, only one minor water outage was reported.  The island’s wastewater was always up and running.
