Subject: [CPEO-MEF] WATER: Navy's Tumon-Maui Well, Guam
Dormant Tumon well to be repaired: Navy: Additional 1.3M gallons to meet buildup demand

The Navy is moving ahead with a plan to rehabilitate the Tumon-Maui Well, an unusual sideways facility that may allow the Guam Waterworks Authority to buy more military water when buildup population raises demand.

A restored Tumon-Maui Well would produce about 1.3 million gallons per day -- or 900 gallons per minute -- in the middle of Guam, "where demand from workforce housing and induced growth is expected to be concentrated," according to an online Navy memo about the project.

If the Tumon-Maui Well is brought back to life, it would become the island's most productive well and the third biggest water producer on Guam -- behind only GWA's Ugum Water Treatment Plant and Navy's Fena Reservoir.
