Restricted access to Agingan Point Wastewater Treatment Plant

(CUC) — The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. has just finished six months of restoration work across the island of Saipan and hopes the public has seen similar or better service from all of CUC’s 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 from the public, guests to the island, and visitors to areas of special interest.

One location is the Agingan Point Wastewater Treatment Plant or WWTP. It was heavily affected by the Category 5 Super Typhoon Yutu and elements of the plant and outfall piping are still under repair which can possibly mean that areas may not be safe for the public to go.

CUC’s first thought is to the safety of its employees and of any visitors to the Agingan site. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, access to the Agingan Point WWTP will be restricted to plant personnel only and/or authorized visitors with business at the treatment facility that have been approved by the acting drinking water and wastewater manager. CUC apologizes in advance to the tour groups who enjoy taking their interested clients to the Agingan point location because access will be restricted and off limits for the foreseeable future.

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. Please be patient and as CUC completes its repairs at the plant, consideration will be given to reopening the site for visits and fishing opportunities.
