Taitano says [Mayor] Rivera is working with the owners to secure the property to prevent access to the cliff line.

 

Guam – A follow-up to the Jonestown illegal dumpsite story, the Guam EPA says they have contacted the landowners and are working with them to permanently stop illegal duping at that site.

 

 

 

 

According to the GEPA Air and Land Administrator Conchita Taitano, the owners of the property are off island, which makes it difficult to coordinate possible solutions. According to Taitano, GEPA will try and locate the people dumping the trash first before contacting the landowner. If the problem continues however, the landowner can face legal action. Taitano says this could happen with the Jonestown illegal dumpsite.

 

“In talking to Mayor Louise, she has been working with her partners with the department of defense and there’s a number of them including AmeriCorps to clean up that cliff line and based on information she provided to us, the last cleanup was around June 4, is this a sustainable methodology, the answer is no,” said Taitano.

Taitano says Rivera is working with the owners to secure the property to prevent access to the cliff line.
