Guam - The Consolidated Commission on Utilities has several issues to discuss on their agenda this evening and one of the more pressing ones includes coming to an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regarding the deadlines to complete the last nine remaining items with is stipulated order.

CCU chairperson Simon Sanchez said, "Our concern with the USEPA is achieving compliance, but doing it in a way that we don't price water outside the reach of people. That's why we've been arm wrestling with USEPA on the appropriate deadlines to complete the remaining items. Talks are going well in our view."

Since the stipulated order was signed in 2002, the Guam Waterworks Authority has spent over $100 million to meet compliance standards and another $300 million is projected to be spent to meet the remaining items on their list. Both GWA and USEPA have been ordered to submit an agreement to the federal court by the end of this month.
