Junk car cleanup effort truly in limbo

by Lannie Walker

Guam - With Lorilee Crisostomo out the door of the Guam Environmental Protection Agency, it remains to be seen whether progress will finally move forward on the Abandoned Vehicles Cleanup Project.  Guam EPA Spokesperson Gerry Cruz says a report on the most recent inspection at the company was sent to the GEPA board this week and they are now waiting on the members to review recommendations in order to possibly lift the notice of violation so Bali Steel can move forward with their operations.

But according to Cruz, lifting the NOV is still not a sure thing.  "There is a lot of conditions and recommendations we are making to the board before the agency lifts the NOV and we want to make sure Bali Steel stays compliant as per the permit they were issued," he responded.

The GEPA board is scheduled to meet at the end of July.
