Guam - Although the Guam Environmental Protection Agency wouldn't release it earlier this week, a notice of violation issued to Lujan Towing and Auto Parts in Toto was made public through its filing with the federal court. According to the NOV, the company was operating an illegal dump. The Guam EPA's investigation uncovered the storage of cars and other metallic waste without the valid storage permit.

For example: approximately 101 fifty-five gallon drums of oil without secondary containment, and various sized containers of paint related materials were being stored illegally.

GEPA has ordered Lujan's to immediately cease storing or collecting solid waste and to come up with a plan to clean up and remove all of the waste within 15 days of receipt of the NOV. The company must also arrange to meet with GEPA officials within 20 days of receipt of the NOV in order to discuss settlement and administrative penalties.

If Lujan's does not meet these requirements they may be punishable by civil and criminal actions including penalties of up to $10,000 a day for each violation.
