Ordot Dump Post-Closure Care Operations
The Receiver recently reported that all systems for both the Layon Landfill and the Ordot Dump are working as designed to protect the environment of Guam and comply with all applicable environmental laws and regulation. The Receiver also informed the District Court that a small area outside the cover system of the Ordot Dump continues to emit a small amount of landfill gas. After consultation with the US EPA and Guam EPA, some drilling in this area will soon begin to determine if any additional steps are needed to address this issue. The drilling work will begin during August and continue for a period of six to eight weeks.


GSWA Receives Award
