Guam Receives Funding for Water Infrastructure Projects

The EPA has awarded $7.8 million to Guam for wastewater and drinking water infrastructure improvements.

Since 2010, Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA) has received more than $65 million in EPA Clean Water and Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Funds. The GWA has worked hard to complete numerous projects with those funds, including waste water collection upgrades and other water system overhauls.

This year, the funds will be used to upgrade drinking water booster stations, and to develop a remote monitoring and control system to manage drinking water distribution and wastewater collection networks.

“This much-needed funding will help Guam provide cleaner, safer drinking water, while protecting its coral reefs,” said Alexis Strauss, EPA’s Acting Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest. “We will continue to support Guam Waterworks Authority’s efforts to ensure safe drinking water and adequate sanitation for the residents of Guam.”

$1 million of the funds will be used to help maintain GWA’s infrastructure facilities and leak-detection program.
