EPA Administrator unaware of political pressure

Posted: Updated:

Guam Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lorilee Crisostomo says despite a report
from federal receiver, GBB to the District Court, she never felt pressure or received any threats of termination from the Guam EPA board.  GBB reviewed months of communication between Guam EPA staff, Crisostomo and the board and told the court that they believe there was political pressure from the board to have staff put priority on the Guatali landfill application submitted by Guam Resource Recovery Partners instead of the Layon landfill application as ordered by the District Court.  Crisostomo told KUAM that she was unaware of any attempts to have her terminated or any pressure by the board to have her staff prioritize any applications other than those ordered by the federal judge.
