New info revealed about who may be responsible for dump's contamination

Posted: Updated:

More details have been released on GovGuam's continuing lawsuit to hold the Navy accountable for its part in the contamination of the old Ordot Dump.  The Attorney General's Office provided copies of the DC district court's ruling.

Basically, in her decision on the Navy's motion for dismissal, the judge found that the 2004 Consent Decree between Guam and the U.S. EPA failed to resolve who is liable for the cost of the Ordot cleanup.

She concluded that GovGuam can continue with a lawsuit seeking recovery of its costs for the dump closure.
