Guam - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is among the many participants in the Adaptive Program Management Workshop being hosted by the Civilian Military Coordination Council. USEPA Deputy Director of Communities and Eco-Systems Fran Schultz says the agency is specifically concerned with trying to gauge and determine how the buildup will directly impact the drink water, solid waste disposal, and wastewater and how to mitigate those impacts.

"Take some steps toward identifying where do we go from here how do we organize into working groups to address impacts of the buildup," said Schultz. "The impacts including from the direct military construction as well as induced impacts from private and public construction as well."

The workshop continues on Wednesday at the Top O' the Mar in Piti.
