Guam - Just a day after holding a status hearing, District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood issued an order today mandating the Guam Waterworks Authority and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to work together to draft a proposed plan to complete the outstanding projects with specific achievable deadlines.

GWA has said that it has been unable to come into compliance with the Clean Water Act and resolve the remaining seven outstanding issues in the stipulated order because of a lack of funding.  The agency now has $118 million to begin those projects.

The judge ordered the parties to file the plan by December 15 and says if they cannot reach an agreement, both parties will have to file separate briefs by that date. The next status hearing is scheduled for March 9.
