ASAN, Guam – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Marianas reminds the community of the availability of three Programmatic Agreement (PA) Memos for public review and comments through Sept. 14, 2017.

The following PA Memos provide new cultural and natural resources information associated with planned construction projects and are available on the NAVFAC Pacific Cultural Information (CRI) webpage at http://go.usa.gov/kZWG. (Please note the URL is case sensitive).

J-001B PA Memo #1 Finegayan Forest Enhancement on Naval Base Guam Telecommunications Site (NBGTS). This project proposes forest enhancement through construction of ungulate perimeter fencing to exclude the introduced ungulates that endanger the native vegetation.

P-103 Phase 2 Revised PA Memo #1 Water Well Development-Design and Construction on Andersen Air Force Base (AAFB).

The wells would provide approximately 1.2 million gallons of water per day, and would be used to support increase in personnel, facilities, and operations associated with the military relocation. This PA Memo has been amended to reflect changes in the Area of Potential Effects (APE) that were necessary as a result of design requirements.
