USEPA, GEPA unable to agree on order

Guam - The Guam Waterworks Authority and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have been unable to reach an agreement on a proposed plan for the remaining projects from the stipulated order. The court had ordered the parties to work together to develop a plan on how GWA would correct deficiencies with the Clean Water Act. 

The feds contend the local utility agency is currently in violation of numerous requirements of the stipulated order, specifically by failing to complete projects at the Agana, Southern and Northern District Wastewater Treatment Plants, water storage tanks, and sewer hook up program, to name a few. 

The feds also identified other projects they want GWA to include and have asked the court to impose firm deadlines for GWA to complete the projects.
