Guam - District Court Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan will make a report and recommendation to the chief judge on what deadlines should be imposed for the Guam Waterworks Authority. The agency has been working with the USEPA on outstanding projects in the stipulated order.
The parties have been unable to reach an agreement on two projects that deal with the repair of water tanks and the southern wastewater system. USEPA and GWA cannot agree on the timelines for the projects to be completed and how much it will cost ratepayers.
The judge took the arguments under advisement and will make a report at a later time.
