US govt seeks court OK for $600K to buy 2 fuel tanks

Posted on Apr 15 2019


The U.S. government has asked the U.S. District Court for the NMI to allow it to buy, ship, and install two horizontal cylindrical tanks to replace the corroded tanks at the Commonwealth Utilities Corp.’s Power Plant 4 in Puerto Rico, on Saipan.

The project has a budget of $600,000.

U.S. Department of Justice Environmental Enforcement Section senior trial attorney Bradley R. O’Brien informed the court last Friday that the work will be done by the court-appointed Engineering and Environmental Management Company, to be funded through the Court Registry Account.
