Guam – While UOG professionals gathered for the first day of the Island Sustainability Conference, just down the hall, the Guam Waterworks Authority held its 2nd annual water and wastewater conference, which discusses major water issues facing Guam and its region.

Close to 150 professionals from around the pacific region gathered to talk about water and how Guam will treat its precious resource for years to come. One of the major talking points today focused on Guam’s aquifer and how the island can maintain the regions fastest charging water source, while our neighbors from the CNMI face a much more difficult challenge. One Guam native traveled all the way from New York to listen in on the conference and keep tabs on how Guam looks to a more sustainable future in water and energy.

 

“Definitely recharging of the aquifers is one of the takeaways, if there was definitely the military buildup, what is the plan to sustain the island with the locals and the additional buildup, so coming up and making sure theirs a solution and that we have a PNA for the future, its contingent on whatever happens,” said Marina.
