Guam - The Department of Public Works has hit a snag with efforts to remove drums from the Upper Tumon lot. In the latest status report filed with the District Court, the agency informed the court that the project will require a contractor to remove the drum and cleanup the spills in various locations at the DPW compound.
The new bid will also have to require that testing be done to determine if materials are hazardous, which will also impact the cost and time associated with removing the materials. DPW told the court it could take 120 days to complete the project as it was ordered by District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood.
