Guam- Thursday evening, the Guam Environmental Protection Agency Board of Directors heard an appeal from developer Cyfred which asked for re-consideration of its request to install a pilot wastewater system in the Gill Baza Subdivision.
Guam EPA Spokesperson Tammy Jo Anderson Taft says Cyfred's request was initially denied because it was out of their authority to approve the request in the first place. She said Guam EPA then referred Cyfred to the Department of Land Management.
Taft said the GEPA Board would hear from both sides of the case first, before making a decision on the appeal at a later time.

“Guam EPA's stance as of now is that this is an appeal that should be heard by the Land Use Commission given that it is a zoning requirement that's causing the issue” said Taft.
Gill Baza residents won a $700 thousand dollar suit several years ago against Cyfred for failing to install sewer lines in the subdivision. After the Superior Court of Guam seized 85 lots owned by the developer in 2009 to help pay for the judgment costs, the company then filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in federal court to avoid the auction.
