Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency has officially asked for the federal receiver's help in estimating the amount of liquid coming from the Lujan's Junkyard dump site.  The request filed today in the District Court, comes a week after Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood ordered a proper and thorough investigation of the Lujan salvage site in Toto and other similar dumps in a certain radius of the Ordot Dump. 

The agency discovered a sizeable illegal dump in Toto and are hoping Gershman, Brickner & Bratton can help facilitate the assistance they need to estimate the leachate volume from the site.
