Guam- The Department of Parks and Recreation is making progress to re-open the Agana pool by October 1.
The facility was shut down for nearly 2 months because of a corroded pipe and clogged filters. In that time frame, an unidentified private business also stepped up to help with repairs. Director Peter Calvo says they are now filling up the pool slowly, but have to run more tests in the coming week. He mentions they want to make sure the system is all checked out before the public uses it again.
“By the beginning of next week, we should be testing the piping systems to make sure they’re operational and then hopefully the end of the week, the filters” said Calvo. “And then we’re able to do an opening of the pool for all our users of Guam.”
Down the line, Calvo says they will have to find funding to take care of the long term problems with the aging pool facility. In the meantime, he notes the current repairs should sustain the area for a while.
