Guam - You may not see any smoke, but you can certainly smell it. Guam EPA Administrator Ivan Quinata told KUAM News, "There was a complaint that was received that they're continuing to detect an odor coming form the pit and so we sent an inspector up there and he confirmed there is a distinct odor and also some smoke coming out of a hole. In the ground I the cap that the placed on top of the illegal dump site."
Several years ago a fire erupted at the Taitano's illegal dump in Yigo; the company was issued a notice of violation by GEPA but two years later, according to Quinata, a settlement is still being worked on between Taitano's attorney and the AG's office.
In the meantime GEPA continues to monitor the smoke.
