Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency is working on responding to comments that were submitted for Guam Resource Recovery Partner's proposed landfill in Atantano, Santa Rita. The concerns ranged from engineering issues and financial assurances to its overall intent.
Guam EPA's technical team is reviewing all of the comments. Spokesperson Tammy Jo Anderson Taft said, "It's going to take us a little bit of time to get all the answers to all those comment, but we will be responding to every single one in writing and we will be providing that written response to all the villages where we have the comment and permit for review."
The team is organizing all of the comments that were received because some are duplicates. Taft says she's hoping to do that over the holiday season. GRRP is waiting on the agency's decision on their landfill permit as they want to proceed immediately.
