Posted: Updated:

Guam - Because there are concerns about further delaying the timelines to complete the remaining projects under the stipulated order, District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has given the parties additional time to discuss their concerns. Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan recommended compromised timelines for the Guam Waterworks Authority to complete repairs to southern wastewater systems.

The federal government has been given until August 16 to file an opposition to GWA's concerns while the utility agency must respond by August 23. The agency has argued that it may not be able to obtain the necessary financing in time to meet the court's proposed deadlines. 

The court is scheduled to hear the matter on September 21.
