PUBLIC COMMENT & HEARING

GUAM 2022-2023 CLEAN WATER AND SAFE DRINKING WATER CONSTRUCTION GRANT PROJECTS PRIORITY LIST

The Clean Water Act (CWA) and Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) authorizes the USEPA to provide federal grants to Territories for needed infrastructure improvements to wastewater systems and public water systems. The primary purpose of the Federal grants is to assist the Territory in protecting public health and meeting enforceable requirements of the CWA and SDWA. The Guam Environmental Protection Agency (Guam EPA), in conjunction with Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA) prepares and ranks the proposed project priority list following guidelines established by USEPA, including the use of a quantifiable method of ranking projects. The priority ranking system considers factors including protection of public health, compliance with the CWA and SDWA, and protection of Guam’s aquifers and surface water quality.
