Guam – Its an eye-sore across from the Governor’s mansion. GWA’s old and rusty Agana Heights water tank.
But the utility says that it will soon be torn down to make way for a new concrete water tank, like the one nearing completion in Latte Heights.
This old Agana Heights water-tank is empty. It hasn’t had any water in it for 10-years, says GWA Spokeswoman Heidi Ballendorf.
She says by January, it will be replaced by a new half-million gallon concrete water tank by DN Tanks of California. That’s the same company that is building the Latte Heights tank.
Ballendorf says that the Agana Heights and the Chaot water tanks are the next 2 on the list for replacement.
In all, Ballendorf says that we can expect to see 4 or 5 new concrete water tanks being built during the next 2 years.
Some of them paid for with DOI funds and others with GWA’s 2010 bond money.
All of them are required under the federal court order issued to satisfy the more than 10-year old lawsuit brought against GWA by the U.S. EPA.
