Guam - Petroleum hydrocarbons, benzopyrene, arsenic, lead, mercury and PCBs - all chemicals found in the surface soil of the Ibanez and Guerrero properties in Toto. While each are known to have negative impacts on human health, the Guam Environmental Protection Agency feels there is no immediate concern.

"We really have not found the levels that are high enough to actually impact the health so we continued to monitor what's out there," said an EPA representative. That conclusion was echoed from a final proposed plan released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As we reported, the property was once used as a military dumpsite, and for decades the families living there have been trying to get it cleaned up.
