Guam Initiatives Highlighted During Congressional Hearing on Climate Change Act

Date: April 22, 2021

Guam was represented before the US Congress as University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability and Sea Grant Director Austin Shelton provided testimony in support of the Insular Area Climate Change Act in a virtual hearing last month.

The Insular Area Climate Change Act aims to reduce climate crisis impacts by creating greater access to federal climate change–related programs and creating multiple grant programs through which insular areas could invest in renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure. The act would also raise the non-federal cost share, or match, waiver to $750,000 for territories, which would increase the ability of islands to leverage funding to implement climate action projects.

The Center for Island Sustainability, in partnership with the Office of the Governor of Guam, is leading the facilitation of the Guam Green Growth initiative, the island's most comprehensive public-private partnership to date toward achieving a sustainable future.

Shelton highlighted during this testimony how Guam is ready to implement the new climate change programs if the legislation is enacted, as it recently took the following steps toward achieving a sustainable future:

  • Mandated 100% renewable energy production by 2045
  • Established the Guam Green Growth initiative, a public-private partnership that aims to advance the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  • Adopted the Guam Coral Reef Resilience Strategy
  • Formed the Guam Climate Change Resiliency Commission

Vessel Operator and Engineers Sentenced for Apra Harbor Oil Waste Discharge Offenses

Date: March 17, 2021

A vessel operating company was sentenced on February 18 in Hagatna, Guam, for illegally discharging oil into Apra Harbor, Guam, and for maintaining false and incomplete records relating to the discharges of oily bilge water from the vessel Kota Harum.

Pacific International Lines Limited (PIL), Chief Engineer Maung Maung Soe, and Second Engineer Peng Luo Hai admitted that oily bilge water was illegally dumped from the Kota Harum directly into the ocean and into Apra Harbor without being properly processed through required pollution prevention equipment, according to a US Department of Justice press release. Oily bilge water typically contains oil contamination from the operation and cleaning of machinery on the vessel. The defendants also admitted that these illegal discharges were not recorded in the vessel’s oil record book as required by law.

PIL pleaded guilty to five felony violations of the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships for failing to accurately maintain the Kota Harum’s oil record book, and one felony violation of the Clean Water Act for knowingly discharging oil into a water of the United States in a quantity that may be harmful. The judge sentenced PIL to pay a total criminal penalty of $3 million and serve a four-year term of probation, during which all vessels operated by the company and calling on US ports will be required to implement a robust Environmental Compliance Plan.

Soe and Hai previously pleaded guilty and were sentenced to two years of probation and one year of probation, respectively. Additionally, both Soe and Hai are prohibited from serving as engineers onboard any commercial vessels bound for the US during their respective terms of probation.

GAO Report: FEMA Needs to Address Long-Term Disaster Recovery for Pacific Islands

Date: March 17, 2021

The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and Hawaii experienced an unprecedented number of natural disasters in 2018—including typhoons, earthquakes, mudslides, and volcanic eruptions.

Due to distance from the continental US, disaster response and recovery can be challenging. FEMA has worked to address these challenges, but the agency could improve disaster recovery in several areas, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. This report examines how FEMA and its federal partners prepared for and responded to the 2018 disasters; and the extent to which FEMA assisted the CNMI, Guam, and Hawaii in recovering from the 2018 natural disasters.

As of October 2020, FEMA obligated $877 million—more than 70% of which was for individual and public assistance missions—following the 2018 disasters and made progress addressing some region-specific challenges. However, FEMA has not fully addressed housing assistance issues in the CNMI.

GAO also identified delays in FEMA’s obligation of public assistance program funds—used to repair or replace disaster-damaged public infrastructure such as utilities, roads, and schools. Specifically, on average, it took over a year for FEMA to approve funds for projects awarded after the 2018 disasters.

GAO is making four recommendations, including that FEMA 1) incorporate lessons learned into permanent housing construction guidance; and 2) use performance data to identify and address inefficiencies in the public assistance program. The Department of Homeland Security concurred, and FEMA is taking actions in response.

Power Authority Manager Addresses Energy Security Concerns

Date: February 17, 2021

In a recent letter to the editor, Guam Power Authority General Manager John M. Benavente, P.E., responded to concerns about Guam’s energy security and the agency’s clean energy practices.

Benavente wrote the following in The Guam Daily Post:

We support the efforts of the Legislature to set green energy policies, however mandating the formula to achieve these goals must be left to the experts in the utility, Consolidated Commission on Utilities and the Public Utilities Commission. GPA will never support legislation that unjustly raises prices for ratepayers. For instance, if passed, Bill 219-35 would have cost ratepayers $10 million-plus in an annual subsidy and increased energy prices for nonsolar ratepayers. Nonsolar ratepayers are currently subsidizing the rooftop Net Metering Program by $3.5 million annually; Bill 219-35 would have increased that subsidy threefold.

Clean, green energy must be intelligently planned and implemented in a responsible, affordable manner. Renewable energy alone is not the panacea to the island’s environmental and economic concerns. Reckless mandates to implement costly renewable projects strip away energy security for the most vulnerable of our island’s population.

US Supreme Court Takes Guam Superfund Site Case

Date: January 27, 2021

The US and Guam will argue before the US Supreme Court over the responsibility of an $160 million environmental cleanup, according to a Courthouse News Service report.

In 1940, the US Navy created a toxic waste disposal site without any environmental safeguards. When Guam was left with the responsibility of cleanup, it sought those costs under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act.

In 2018, a district court concluded that Guam’s claim could proceed. Last year, the DC Circuit said, however, that Guam’s claim was prevented by a specific section within the CERCLA, which has specific time restraints for intermediaries to file their challenges. The court held then that section prevented Guam’s claims because of a decade-old consent decree, settling those claims under the Clean Water Act. Guam filed the lawsuit three years after that decree, so the claims were prevented.


Guam's Construction Sector Solid, but Faces Local Workforce Challenges

Date: January 27, 2021

Guam’s construction industry is stable in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic and will be “solid” for the next three years, needing more local and foreign skilled workers, Guam Contractors Association President James Martinez told the Rotary Club of Guam.

Shortly before his presentation, the Navy announced initial contract awards under a $990 million multiple award construction contract over the next five years as part of the development of the new base that will host Marines’ relocation from Okinawa to Guam, according to a Guam Daily Post report.

“At least for construction, the next three years would be quite promising and quite solid,” Martinez said, “And we hope that trickles down to the rest of the economy by providing additional jobs for local workers here, but also for small business companies and suppliers, to do more business with the military and get that sector going.”

Guam Seeks Guidance on Sustainability Tracking

Date: January 27, 2021

Guam is looking at Hawaii for examples of how the island can track its sustainability goals, according to a Pacific Daily News article.

Hawaii has the Aloha+ Challenge Dashboard, an online open-data platform to track progress, provide accountability and ensure transparency on Hawaii’s sustainability goals. Guam’s G3 Working Group is partnering with Hawaii Green Growth to implement a similar dashboard for Guam to track progress on goals outlined in the G3 Action Framework

The platform provides data that shows Hawaii’s progress in meeting its sustainable goals, including solid waste reduction, local food production and clean energy transformation. The website shows if the state is on track with the goals or if things can be improved.

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Gov. Josh Tenorio signed the G3 Action Framework last September. The plan—a 10-year strategy to develop tangible solutions to sustainability challenges—was developed by the G3 Working Group, comprised of 80 members representing government, academia, private sector and nonprofit partners. The group was established in September 2019 and is facilitated by the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability.

Defense Bill Would Allow Foreign Construction Workers in Guam

Date: December 16, 2020

Congress voted on an annual defense bill that includes a provision allowing Guam to admit skilled foreign workers for both military and civilian construction projects, a move that could help ease a labor shortage in the US territory.

The projects would include the construction of the US Marine Corps facilities at the newly activated Camp Blaz, including several designed by Hawaii architecture firms as part of a military initiative partially funded by the Japanese government. It’s one of the largest military construction endeavors in the Pacific region.

The provision, which would allow Guam to admit workers on H-2B visas is part of the $740 billion National Defense Authorization Act for 2021. H-2B visas allow foreign workers to take temporary jobs in the US and its territories.

Guam Featured in Data Collection for NOAA's Largest Coastal Mapping Project

Date: October 28, 2020

A project completed the collection of topographic and bathymetric lidar and digital imagery for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) largest coastal mapping project. These efforts include updating information for 12,000 square miles along the Eastern Seaboard, Pacific, and Gulf Coast that have not been surveyed for hundreds of years, according to a news release in Directions Magazine.

NOAA will use the data to support additional mapping, nautical charting, geodesy services, marine debris surveys and marine resource management assessments. The data also will be available to other federal, state and local agencies, as well as the public and commercial entities, and can provide valuable insights into sediment transport, emergency management forecasting, the impact of flooding and storm surge, transportation projects, and updating systems for recreational and commercial fishing.

Work for this contract stemmed from a supplemental appropriation from Congress for accurate and consistent measurement of the national shoreline following three storms in 2018–Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Michael and Typhoon Yutu–as part of NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division’s Coastal Mapping program.

Data is currently being delivered for 11 project areas in Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, southern Virginia, North Carolina, northern South Carolina, Florida, and southeast Alabama. The full data set is expected to be available for public use by summer 2021.
