Guam - A settlement between the owner of an illegal dump in Yigo and the Guam Environmental Protection Agency could finally be reached, according to agency administrator Liz Cruz, who says they have been working with legal counsel and just need one more piece to fall into place before a settlement is reached.  Because the negotiations are ongoing, Cruz says she cannot discuss the repercussions Joseph Taitano, the dump's owner, will face.

"We were talking about some kind of parameter to prevent people from going there as well as possibly some kind of notice in the paper telling people this is not a permitted hard fill site do not go here under our regulations if we find or know about the individuals that do dump there we will be able to do litigation against them," she explained.

Cruz says Assistant Attorney General William Bishcoff will decide what court actions to take.
