There is currently a lawsuit filed by save southern Guam Inc. and Pago Bay residents to halt construction of the two hotels in Pago Bay.

 

 

Guam – CCU Chairman Joey Duenas says right now GWA does not have the infrastructure to handle the construction of two proposed high-rise hotels in Pago Bay.

 

Duenas says he wants to make sure, in the future GWA notifies developers in the Pago Area, that the water line and sewer lines are not capable of handling a surge of customers. Duenas says he is worried that developers will see the existing infrastructure and think it can handle a new development. Duenas says this is not the case.

 

“I just want to make sure, cause we have a huge waterline that goes down. I’m sure the developer looked at that and said hey, this is a huge waterline. It’s pumping water down to the south. No we need to tell them that water is destined for Agat, Santa Rita, Talafofo and everybody in windward hills,” said Duenas. “I just want to make sure, that when developers come in that we really tell them, yes or no. Because if we don’t have the infrastructure here. What I’m scared about is they see the infrastructure there and they don’t understand that that infrastructure is not just for Pago Bay.”
