Scheduled water outages tomorrow

There will be a scheduled water outage tomorrow, Oct. 11, 2017, from 8am to 5pm in the Chalan Piao, San Antonio, and Chalan Kanoa areas. A Commonwealth Utilities Corp. contractor, AIC Marianas Inc., will repair a leak on an 18-inch transmission line. Customers in the affected areas should expect restoration of water services soon after.

Repairs will be located at the corner of Guangdong Hardware in As Lito.

Due to the closure of the southbound lane and for the safety of men and women working at the site, motorists are advised to proceed with caution and take alternative routes when traveling by the area.

That same day, there will be a scheduled water service interruption from 8am to 5pm in the Puerto Rico, Sadog Tasi, Lower Base, Lower Navy Hill, and Garapan areas. Customers in the affected areas should expect restoration of water services soon after.

The purpose of the interruption is to allow CUC’s contractor, GPPC Inc., to abandon a 2-inch waterline on Isa Drive, Sadog Tasi and transfer customers onto the 12-inch water main to provide a more effective and efficient operation. This project is part of an ongoing Cross Island Road Phase 3 project on Capital Hill.

For more information, contact the CUC Customer Call Center (664-4282) or monitor CUC’s Facebook page for the latest updates ( (PR)
