Posted: Updated:

Guam - Consolidated Commission on Utilities chairperson Simon Sanchez says he's anxious for the final environmental impact statement to be released from the Department of Defense, as it deals with the movement of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam. Sanchez says he's interested to find out what the military has planned for water, wastewater and power for the island.

"We hope it addresses all the concerns we have with protecting the aquifer, making sure it's used wisely and doesn't compromise the future of Guam. We want to make sure there are solid wastewater solutions and make sure we can handle the population growth and challenges that it brings," he told KUAM News.

He says he wants to ensure the DoD pays its fair share for infrastructure needs. In the meantime, he says they're finalizing a memorandum of understanding with the federal government for the buildup, which will be executed by the end of July.
