Feds want GWA to be up to par first

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The controversial Younex Workforce Housing Project was discussed during today's status hearing featuring the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which made it clear during the teleconference that they don't want the company to be able to hook into the island's water system until the Guam Waterworks Authority can handle the additional capacity needed for the workforce housing.

The feds took issue with the Department of Public Works issuing a building permit to the company. DPW defended its action, saying Younex was only able to construct a shell, but not able to hook up to utilities until they go through the necessary permitting processes. GWA officials agreed that Younex cannot hook up to the system at this time.

The feds have suggested that Younex be required to pay for the additional upgrades necessary for water and wastewater infrastructure.
