Water service interruption in Fina Sisu on Jan. 5, 2022
The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. would like to inform the public that there will be a scheduled water service interruption on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022, from 8am to 5pm for customers in the Fina Sisu village along Tun Antonio Apa Road and Tun Joaquin Doi Road.
The scheduled water service interruption is to allow CUC’s contractor for the Fina Sisu Waterline Replacement Project to perform the tapping and connection of the new 8-inch waterline at Tun Antonio Apa Road. Customers may experience low water pressure to no water. Water service to the affected areas will resume soon after the connection.
This project is part of the Fina Sisu Waterline Replacement Project to provide a more reliable water system to the people of the CNMI. It is funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. (PR)
High surf advisory in effect until 6am today
A high surf advisory remains in effect until 6am today, Thursday, on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota.
Based on the information received from the National Weather Service in Guam and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center State Warning Point, large breaking waves up to 10 feet are present in north and west facing reefs through 6 am today. This creates dangerous swimming and surfing conditions and localized beach erosion. Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water.
Inexperienced swimmers should remain out of the water due to dangerous surf conditions.
The public is advised to stay out of the water along north and east facing shores. Elsewhere, swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don’t swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help. (PR)
