USEPA's concerns noted in latest 'Grey Papers'

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The We Are Guahan organization has released another installment of the Grey Papers.  This time the group is publicizing the comments of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.  The USEPA, upon review, previously called the DEIS on the military buildup on Guam "environmentally unsatisfactory".

We Are Guahan member Attorney Leevin Camacho says the organization is just as alarmed with the impacts the buildup will have on the local community.  The USEPA noted there would be a 13.1 million-gallon shortfall of drinking water per day for people living off-base in 2014.  It also pointed out that the DEIS fails to guarantee the protection of Guam's aquifer from bacteria and toxic contaminants.

"As of right now," said Camacho, "we haven't heard anything about any funding what so ever so whether it be $1-$2 billion dollars whether it be $500 million, the Guam Waterworks Authority is going to have to get the money somewhere and its looking like its going to be Guam residents."
