The Enewetak Ujelang Local Government celebrated and blessed its new excavator in a ceremony in Majuro last week. It was purchased with a US Department of Interior grant and will ultimately be located at Enewetak to support improvement work for the Enewetak dock and other projects.

Until it can find transportation to the northern atoll, the excavator will be used for EULG community projects in Majuro.
