US judge OKs CUC cylindrical tanks

DISTRICT Court for the NMI Judge David O. Carter has allowed the Commonwealth Utilities Corporation to buy, ship, and install two horizontal cylindrical tanks to replace the corroded tanks at Power Plant 4 in Puerto Rico, Saipan.

The judge issued the order on Friday, April 12, 2019.

The project, which will cost $600,000, will replace the current corroded horizontal cylindrical tanks with new shop-fabricate tanks of 20,000-gallon capacity each, the judge said.

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