Guam- With heavy rainfall comes concerns with sedimentation runoff.

These photos were sent to PNC Friday morning by environmental stakeholders. It depicts how rainwater flowing out of the East Agana Bay near the Alupang Beach Club is causing erosion and sediments to flow out to the ocean. Other images show sedimentation runoff and brown plumes in the pago bay area.

Environmental officials and some fishermen say this demonstrates the need for improved storm water control, green infrastructure, lower impact development and soil conservation measures.
