Asan Springs Water Supply Facilities - Guam Waterworks Authority Project No. W11-003-BND

War in the Pacific National Historical Park » Asan Springs Water Supply Facilities - Guam Waterworks Authority Project No. W11-003-BND » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) invites the public to provide input on proposed options to restore the Asan Springs water supply facility, which is partially on NPS lands in Asan village. The Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA) is proposing to restore the facility to increase input to the Agana-Asan-Piti Integrated Water Supply and Storage System to meet water supply demands in west central Guam. The NPS is reviewing the request and would like to inform the public about the project and provide an opportunity for public input.

The concrete reservoir was constructed by the U.S. Navy in 1916 to impound the flow from the Asan Springs. Since then, it was improved by adding a pump station and chlorinator building. However, it was shut down in 2004 due to bacterial contamination and inadequate chlorination to treat the water. This project would upgrade the existing system to provide a clean, dependable water source meeting water quality standards, reduce the demand for additional wells and pumping systems, and avoid purchasing water from the Navy for villages that could be supplied with Asan Springs water.

Other options proposed by the Guam Waterworks Authority include:

• rehabilitation and restart of the existing system,
• closure of the existing system with installation of a new well and pumping system,
• abandonment of the system with installation of a new well and pumping system, and
• taking no action.
