Park Service seeks input on revival of Asan springs water facility

143

The National Park Service is actively seeking public input on the proposed options to restore the Asan Springs water supply facility.

Part of the Asan Spring water supply facility lies on NPS lands.

According to NPS Superintendent, Barbara Alberti, “The Guam Waterworks Authority is proposing to restore the facility to increase input to the Agana-Asan-Piti Integrated Water Supply and Storage System to meet water supply demands in west-central Guam.”

Alberti states the concrete reservoir was originally constructed in 1916 by the US Navy, but it was shut down in 2004 due to bacterial contamination and inadequate chlorination to treat the water.

NPS will be accepting testimony until April 30. The public can submit testimony through an online form at parkplanning.nps.gov/AsanSprings, by mail to 135 Murray Boulevard, Suite 100 Hagåtña, Guam, or email at AsanSprings@nps.gov.
