A decision is expected from the administration of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres today after the board of directors of the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. sent out a request to declare an emergency on Saipan’s water situation.
In an interview, Torres told Saipan Tribune that he will be meeting with the CUC board over the weekend to discuss the request they sent to his office and will be deciding on it today.
If approved, it will be the first time that such an emergency will be declared on Saipan’s water situation.
Torres said he will “bring the board in, find out what exactly they need, what is their goal.”
Asked what it would mean once an emergency is declared, “We’re going to find out, what is the declaration that they have, what the declaration entails and what is their solution,” Torres told Saipan Tribune.
