The District Court of Guam is set to conduct a site visit to the now-closed Ordot Dump, as part of ongoing proceedings related to Guam's landfill case.

Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood will lead the visit with the involved parties, aiming to assess the dump's current condition and its compliance with regulatory standards.

The visit, scheduled for Thursday afternoon, will be overseen by the court-appointed receiver, Gershman, Brickner & Bratton. The receiver has been entrusted with the responsibility of managing the closure facility.

During the visit, officials will brief the court on the dump's operations and maintenance practices, including the functioning of the leachate collection and storage system. Leachate, a liquid that comes from decomposing waste, is pumped to the Guam Waterworks Authority for treatment.

One of the key areas of focus will be the inspection of locations prone to water leaks and seepage, topics that have been previously discussed during status hearings. 

The court aims to gain firsthand insight into these issues, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the landfill's environmental impact.

The site visit, commencing at 1:30 PM tomorrow, underscores the court's commitment to closely monitoring the landfill's closure process.
