Guam - According to the latest status report filed with the District Court, the Guam Environmental Protection Agency is working with the Lujan's Salvage Yard and Towing Services in Toto to address its notice of violation. As part of a court order to investigate illegal dumps within a three mile radius of Ordot, GEPA investigators found Lujan's running an illegal dump on their property.

The Guam EPA has tentatively accepted the company's disposal plan. "Essentially the plan is have them start to characterize what kind of waste is in that illegal dumpsite and that's how they're moving forward with that 12:08 they requested to meet with some of the staff concerning the (oil) drums that were found," said Ivan Quinata with the EPA.

In terms of other illegal dumps surrounding Ordot, GEPA hasn't found any others but is continuing inspections within the three mile radius set by the court.
