Naval Base Guam is continuing water conservation measures during the island’s dry season, which typically lasts until July, officials said.

Those steps include limiting times when housing residents can water lawns; suspending some fund-raising events such as car washes; and directing residents to wash vehicles only once per month and to use washing machines and dishwashers only when full.

Due to earlier conservation efforts, the Navy on Friday was to restore water supplied to Guam Waterworks Authority to pre-dry season levels, Navy officials stated in a news release. This, they said, should return the water supply to normal in Truman, Mongmong, Cabras and the villages of Agat and Santa Rita. Water pressure, they noted, is affected by other factors and may not increase as a result.
