Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps works with WERI
Our G3 Conservation Corps, UOG Center for Island Sustainability, and UOG Sea Grant teams were with WERI at Mt. Alutom!
WERI is the Water and Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific based out of the University of Guam. Dr. John Jenson presented to the team about the Northern Guam Lens Aquifer (NGLA) and its importance as it provides drinking water to 80% of Guam’s population.
Mt. Alutom provides a great introduction to the characteristics of rock units and other natural features that determine where and how water is captured, stored, and transmitted in the NGLA.
The team helped clear the area to prepare the site for educational tours and will be back with WERI to learn more!
