Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency board will be meeting on September 18 to discuss whether it will accept the proposed order regarding the illegal dump found in Yona.


GEPA administrator Eric Palacios told KUAM News, "I am going to recommend that we adopt it obviously because it will bring us closer to closure of the entire case and we can immediately begin cleanup efforts and make sure Mr. [Manny] Camacho is fully engaged with the process and holding him responsible for the actions."


Camacho was ordered to clean up his land in which he had operated an illegal dump. Initially he was issued a $250,000 penalty which was amended to $63,000.  Palacios says that in addition to this fine Camacho will also be responsible for cleanup costs.
