A major concern relating to the development of the Tinian Harbor is the possible presence of unexploded ordnance.

In a recent meeting of stakeholders called by the CNMI CIP Office, Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality Manager Ray Masga raised the concern with respect to unexploded ordnance the CNMI will face if it undertakes a dredging project.

Masga was among those present when the CIP Office and Moffatt & Nichol presented an update on the assessment of the harbor.

Moffatt & Nichol was seeking input from the stakeholders as they proceed with the project expected to be 60 percent completed by December.

Masga pointed out that the presence of UXO could impact any development that takes place at the harbor.
