EPA's Crisostomo will be at oversight hearing

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Guam Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lorilee Crisostomo says she will be at tomorrow's oversight hearing on her agency. In a letter to Crisostomo, Oversight Chair Senator Rory Respicio (D) wrote that he expects the agency to be prepared to provide the committee with a complete explanation of each of the points in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's End of Year Program Review.

The federal report called out the Guam EPA's financial mismanagement issues, however Crisostomo has said that the report is inaccurate. Respicio also plans to discuss the status of the Abandoned Vehicle Program, the illegal dump site near Chalan Ifil in Yigo, and the complaints against a company that had allegedly dumped sewage in the Nimitz Hill area.

Crisostomo tells KUAM News that she is prepared to answer any and all questions.  The oversight hearing is scheduled for 1pm in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
