GBB investigating Ordot Dump area

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The gates to the Ordot Dump may be closed as solid waste can no longer be disposed there, but federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton is just starting the work necessary for the dump's eventual closure and capping.  That work includes conducting critical investigative activities in the nearby area.

Six of seven rights of entry agreements for properties adjacent to the dump have been signed between owners and government officials.  Officials need access to those properties to investigate the extent of environmental cleanup that is necessary.  Additionally, the rainy weather has delayed the work. 

An interim cap design report is now under evaluation by the local and federal environmental protection agencies.  The receiver estimates the cost for the interim cap installation will be at least $1,000,000.
