The Commonwealth Utilities Corp. said on Monday although it has energized the water distribution system, there will be unanticipated interruption.
In a status update, CUC said water interruptions may be caused by leaks in the distribution system, leaks in customers’ homes, loss of generator power or power interruption from island power, low water tank levels, and other reasons.
“Every attempt will be made to restore water as soon as possible based on the planned water schedule for the day,” CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.
The areas scheduled for 24-hour water services are Puerto Rico and northern Garapan between Micro Beach Road and Orchid Street, central Garapan between Orchid Street and Kopa Di Oru Street, Upper Navy Hill, Maturana, Diboto Lane, Gloria Drive, and Navy Hill Road between Afal Street, Commonwealth Health Center, As Teo/Santa Lourdes, Papago Drive, Susogi Drive, Isa Drive, from Kagman Drive to Betbena Drive, As Rabagau, Sadog Tasi, Talofofo Road, Egigi Road, Isa Drive from 1300 Block to Kagman Road and As Matuis Homestead
As for southern Garapan between Kopa Di Oru Street and Gualo Rai Road, the anticipated schedule is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The water service was shut off at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday in Chinatown downstream of Komiti Avenue due to low tank level. But water service is expected to resume today, Tuesday.
The anticipated water service on Isla Drive between Susuge Drive and Puerto Rico Drive is scheduled for 2 p.m. Chalan Galaide is offline but water services will resume today, Tuesday.

1300 Block and Wireless Ridge have no service and water was shut off due to leaks. Water may be released again Tuesday dependent on tank level.
The anticipated schedule for Susupe and San Jose is from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
