Guam - As the federal receiver works with consultant Brown and Caldwell to prepare for the closure of the Ordot Dump, which is expected at the end of the summer, District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has ordered that Guam Environmental Protection Agency representatives attend a technical planning meeting in San Francisco next month. 

The meeting will be the start of discussions about the closure of the dump and what that will entail over the next few years until the final cap is completed. The receiver and USEPA requested the attendance of key individuals to attend the technical meeting to discuss the post-closure regulations and permitting that will be required. 

The receiver was ordered to cover the costs of the individuals attending the June meeting.
