GBB: Layon on Schedule; Road & Bridge Construction Should not Delay Summer Opening of Landfill

Guam –   GBB’s Principal Associate David Manning says construction on the Layon Landfill is on track and he does not expect some reported delays in bridge and road projects to off-set the timetable

The DPW Weekly Progress Report filed with the District Court Monday says that progress on the Ylig Bridge and Route 4 to Route 17 projects are on schedule. And despite some delays on the Togcha and Talafofo Bridge projects they should be open to “fully loaded transfer trucks in a southbound direction” by the August opening of the new landfill.

There has also been some concern that the Southern Wastewater Treatment plant may not be ready to handle the leachate from the Layon waste cells in time, but in an email to K-57’s Ray Gibson Manning said “The construction on the landfill is on schedule and we do not anticipate any delays in connection with the Inarajan Wastewater Treatment Plant. “

He acknowledged that the “schedule for the bridge projects is tight,” but he cited DPW’s report filed Monday “assuring the Court that the projects are on schedule.”

“We expect to open the Layon Landfill as planned this summer,” said Manning.

Dave,

Grapevine reporting delays in the Layon project – 
Leachate handling at Southern WW Treatment plant – Is the plant ready to process the leachate materials that would come from the bottom of the cells?
Roads and Bridges – DPW said they would be ready in time.   Are you confident Joanne Brown will be able to meet Grand Opening date?
Solid Waste Site indicates 178 days left for Ordot.  Given recycling/materials avoidance, is there any elasticity on the dump closure?
Email response is sufficient, phoner better.  We can call you at 840 Guam time if you like.
Regards,
Ray

Ray,

I am always happy to speak with you but as is often the case, the grapevine is mistaken.  The construction on the landfill is on schedule and we do not anticipate any delays in connection with the Inarajan Waste Water Treatment Plant.  The schedule for the bridge projects is tight but as recently as yesterday the Attorney General filed a report with the Court assuring the Court that the projects are on schedule.  We expect to open the Layon Landfill as planned this summer.  
Let me know if you have other questions
David
