Laws and Regulations

[   Statutes from 10 Guam Code Annotated   |   Program-Related Regulations   ]

Guam EPA's statutory authority is based largely upon 10 Guam Code Annotated (10 GCA), Part 2. Chapters 45 through 54 outline Guam EPA's responsibility in several areas, including Safe Drinking Water (Chapter 53), Air Pollution Control (Chapter 49), and Solid Waste Management (Chapter 51). Additionally, Chapter 76 covers underground storage tanks.

In addition to the 10 GCA Statutes, many Guam EPA programs are responsible for developing specific regulations for activities related to their programs. Many of these regulations are required under the 10 GCA Statutes. Program-related regulations available on this web site are indexed here and also linked from various Program pages. Currently, regulations for the Solid Waste Management Program, the Hazardous Waste Management Program, the Water Resources Management Program, and the Guam Primary and Secondary Drinking Water Regulations are unavailable in electronic format.

The full text of these Statutes and Regulations are included on this site for reference purposes only. Any questions about interpretation of these regulations should be directed to appropriate Guam EPA staff.

All of the Statutes and Regulations on the Guam EPA web site are presented as PDF files (10 GCA Statutes are also available in HTML format). Viewing and printing PDF files requires the free Adobe® Acrobat® Reader. More about PDF files.
