Guam - The case of an illegal dump in Yigo will once again be put before the Guam Environmental Protection Agency board today.  Guam EPA spokesperson Gerry Cruz says the agency will try to come to a resolution with the dump's owner, Joseph Taitano.  Taitano could face between $5,000-$10,000 in fines.  Taitano was issued a notice of violation and order of compliance for the illegal operation of hardfill facility in December 2008.

A few months ago a fire ignited at the dump, forcing several residents to be evacuated.
