Federal receiver submits quarterly report

Posted: Updated:
Federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton this morning provided their quarterly status report on the progress of the Ordot Dump closure. The report highlighted the accomplishments which shows dramatic changes in the construction progress on the east half of the dump. Although the project is 30- days behind schedule because of bad weather, leachate is already being collected on the east half and since January 30th leachate has begun pumping into to the Hagatna Waste Water Treatment Plant.

GBB vice president Chris Lund reported to District Court Chief Judge Francis Tydingco Gatewood that an estimated 11,000 gallons of leachate a day is pumped to the Hagatna facility with no issues. It was also noted that while the sewer construction on Dero Road has been completed they are waiting for a decision on the road's construction.

Meanwhile in Phase Two of the project focusing on the western half GBB is accelerating construction to make up for the lost time in Phase One. Lund says they are continuing to relocate and consolidate waste and initiated the installation of the west leachate collection system. He adds that the contractor's are making a big push to get the cover on by the end of dry season.
