NAVAL Facilities Engineering Command Pacific is accepting comments on the rehabilitation of the Tumon-Maui well, which was identified as one of the projects in the Final Environmental Impact Statement to transfer Marines to Guam and the CNMI.
The well is located just north of St. John’s Episcopal School in Upper Tumon and is on Air Force-owned property. It was first built following World War II in the late 1940s and is considered to be an historic property.
According to NAVFAC’s military relocation to Guam and CNMI Programmatic Agreement memo, the project proposes the design and construction of a water well facility and includes existing site and building repairs and improvements, as well as new energy-efficient mechanical and electrical equipment.
The facilities will be comprised of a treatment facility to remove known contaminants and ensure compliance with pertinent U.S. and Guam EPA Safe Drinking Water Quality Standards/Requirements, and piping installation for water distribution.
The comment deadline for the Tumon-Maui Well Rehabilitation and Wetland Restoration Phase I projects is June 16.
Meanwhile, NAVFAC announced that information on projects in support of the military relocation to Guam is now available on the Cultural Resources Information (CRI) website at http://bit.ly/NAVFAC-GuamPA.
Residents who do not have Internet access can pick up a written description of each project and a mail-in comment form from the Guam Historic Resources Division, located at 490 Chalan Palasyo, Agana Heights, 96910 (across from the U.S. Naval Regional Hospital).
Comments on the identification and evaluation of historic properties within specific project footprints will be accepted for 45 calendar days after the project is posted.
