Four companies on Guam have resolved failures to properly report the storage of hazardous materials.

The Environmental Protection Agency says each of the companies has paid $2,000 and corrected their violations by submitting reports listing qualities of hazardous chemicals they have stored.

Jared Blumenfeld, EPA's regional administrator for the Pacific Southwest, says the reporting requirement is important because it allows local emergency planners and fire departments to be aware of hazardous materials stored in their communities.

The four companies are: The Westin Resort of Guam, Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. of Guam, Guam Waterworks Authority and Goodwin Development Corp.
