Guam - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is keeping a close watch on how their concerns were addressed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement. The feds called the draft version "environmentally unsatisfactory". USEPA Administrator Matt Dohjer says while his agency was critical of details in the Draft EIS, he says they remain optimistic about the final document.

He explained, "The good news is we worked closely in the last 6 months or probably longer with all folks to put together a future on this buildup that does protect against inappropriate impacts on the environment."

The coral reefs, drinking water, and wastewater were some of the concerns raised by USEPA. The final EIS is slated to be released to the public this Friday.
