About the Program

The Water Resources Management Program plays a key role in managing and protecting Guam's principal source aquifer from pollution and overpumping. The program is responsible for implementing the Water Resources Development and Operating Regulations, Underground Injection Control (UIC) Regulations, Wellhead Protection and Water Quality Standards.

Data on groundwater lens characteristics is continuously collected and used to determine how the groundwater resource has been affected and to what extent future development can or should occur. The data is also used to determine whether changes or modifications to the current management are necessary.

The Water Resources Management Program is also responsible for permitting and inspecting production and underground injection wells on Guam.

Program-Related Regulations
