The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. warned yesterday that the Agingan Point Wastewater Treatment Plant, which was heavily damaged by the Category 5 Super Typhoon Yutu, is still under repair and is still off-limits to the public.
CUC said it has just finished six months of restoration work across the island of Saipan “and we hope the public has seen similar or better service from all of our divisions as a result.”
However, there are areas of CUC that are still in the process of being restored and this will require special consideration by the public, guests to the island, and visitors to areas of special interest.
One of those sites is the wastewater treatment plant at Agingan Point. CUC said that elements of the plant and outfall piping are still under repair, which possibly mean that areas may not be safe for the public to go.
CUC said its first priority is the safety of its employees and of any visitors to the Agingan site.
“Therefore, for the foreseeable future, access to the Agingan Point [wastewater treatment plant] will be restricted to plant personnel only and/or authorized visitors with business at the treatment facility.
“Access [to the Agingan Point] will be restricted and off limits for the foreseeable future,” a CUC statement said.
For security purposes, the gate at the entrance to the plant will be locked at all times and no one without prior approval or wearing CUC ID tags will be allowed to enter by the guard at the gate.
