NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
BOARD OF REGENTS
UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI‘I

Pursuant to provisions of Chapter 91, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the Board of Regents of the University of Hawai‘i will hold public hearings on proposed Administrative Rules governing the           determination of residency as applied to tuition payments and admissions at the University of Hawai‘i campuses.  The public hearings will be held as follows:

Kauai May 22, 2006 (Monday)
5:00 p.m
Automotive Classroom 101
Kaua‘i Community College
Lihu‘e, Kauai

Maui May 23, 2006 (Tuesday)
5:00 p.m.
Ka’a’ike Building, Room 105C & D
Maui Community College
Kahului, Maui

O‘ahu May 31, 2006 (Wednesday)
5:00 p.m.
Campus Center, Room 308
University of Hawai‘i at Manoa
Honolulu, Hawai‘I

Hawai‘i June 1, 2006 (Thursday)
5:00 p.m.
Ho‘oulu Terrace, UCB Room 127
University of Hawai‘i at Hilo
Hilo, Hawai‘i

The proposed amendments would: 1) make house-keeping changes to update Chapter 20-4 by including new statutory language and deleting an obsolete     practice; 2) clarify and streamline the University’s     administrative procedures related to residency; 3)    compress wording of the policies to allow greater     stringency in the interpretation of the rules for conversion of non-resident to resident status for tuition purposes; 4) revise the composition of the Committee on Resident Status that hears appeals; and 5) require payment of non-resident tuition while the student is in the appeal process.

In 1989, an amendment to the residency criteria for tuition purposes was set forth in Section 304-4, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes.  The amendment provided that the tax dependency criteria shall not apply to students who are claimed as tax dependents by a parent residing outside Hawai‘i provided: 1) the parent claiming the student is entitled to do so under a child support agreement     resulting from a divorce or legal separation; and 2) the student and the other parent meet all remaining       residency criteria.  Inasmuch as statutes are effective on their enactment, the University was required by law to administer its residency determination procedures in conformance with the change in statute.  The proposed amendments to Chapter 20-4, Hawai‘i Administrative Rules would bring the University’s rules into conformance with law.

Act 237 in 1996 abolished statutory exemptions   previously included in HRS 304-4. Although these     statutory exemptions were abolished, the Board of     Regents in 1996, at the recommendation of the       administration, chose to retain them as Board         exemptions. 

In addition to the aforementioned changes, the     proposed amendments would: 

1. Delete the section on prospective students denied   admission solely on the basis of their nonresident   status since the University does not deny admission solely on this basis.
2. Add the definition of residence to clarify that the term is synonymous with the concept of domicile and   consistent with basic residency criteria and         terminology used by other public institutions of higher education. 
3. Specify the age limit of no more than 23 years of age for dependents, which is consistent with limits set by the military and financial aid for dependency. 
4. Clarify language relating to residency status of non U.S. citizens in compliance with federal laws and consistent with terminology used by other public     institutions of higher education. 
5. Compress wording to apply stringency in the rules   allowing non-residents to gain resident status after one-year of enrollment.
6. Change the composition of the Committee on     Resident Status which hears appeals to initial     decisions of student residency. The current committee of two students and one faculty member would be   replaced by an appeals board of campus residency officers and one administrator.  The proposed change is intended to result in a faster, more efficient     appeals process and greater consistency in appeal decisions.
7. Change the current rule of payment of resident tuition while filing an appeal to where appellants would   register paying non-resident tuition pending the outcome of their appeal. The proposed amendments would alleviate any difficulty in securing the non-  resident differential from the student whose appeal is denied and is consistent with their initial         classification of non-resident status. The student whose appeals are upheld by the appeals board will be refunded the non-resident differential.

The preceding summary of the proposed rules is   provided for your convenience.  Complete copies of the proposed amendments are available at the Office of the Board of Regents, 2444 Dole Street, Room 209,      Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96822.  Copies will be mailed upon request to any interested person.

Individuals wishing or unable to appear at the     specified hearings are urged to file signed statements providing their views on the subject.  Such statements will be received up to and including the date and time of the public hearings and should be addressed to:

Secretary of the Board of Regents
University of Hawai‘i

Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96822

The Commission will investigate whether the proposed general increase in SKWC’s wastewater rates and charges, and its revisions to its rate schedules, are just and   reasonable.  The total revenue requirement for the 2006 calendar test year will not   exceed the $312,539 amount over revenues at present rates that SKWC requests.  However, the increase in rates and charges to be finally approved by the Commission, if any, may be higher or lower than SKWC’s proposed rates and charges noted above.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources, (DLNR), State of Hawaii, pursuant to Chapters 91 and 183C, Hawaii Revised Statutes, will hold public hearings to receive testimony on:

Amendment to Chapter 13-222, HAR regarding shoreline certifications.

The definition of “shoreline” under the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR’s) shoreline certification rules differs from that of the definition under §205A-1, Hawaii Revised Statutes. Under §13-222-2, the “shoreline” is:

“The upper reaches of the wash of the waves, other than storm or tidal waves, at high tide during the season of the year in which the highest wash of the waves occurs, usually evidenced by the edge of vegetation growth, or where there is no vegetation in the immediate vicinity, the upper limit of debris left by the wash of the waves.”

The underscored clause is extra language not found in the statute. The plain terms of this clause appear to reduce interpretation by establishing the vegetation line as the preferred proxy for the shoreline and relegating the debris line to a secondary proxy to be considered only “where there is no vegetation in the immediate vicinity.” This emphasis on the vegetation line had in past led to an emphasis by the surveying community on vegetation, often to the exclusion of other important evidence such as debris lines, scarping on the beach, coastal dune location, changes in vegetation, natural vs. induced vegetation, wave buoy data, and other important evidence of the high wash of the waves. The present language of the rule and its interpretation had, in some cases resulted in shoreline delineations that were too far seaward of their proper location by over-reliance on vegetation. The proposed rules amendment will result in consistent language between the statute and rule.

A copy of the rule amendments is available on-line at: http://www.state.hi.us/dlnr/occl/Rules.php. Materials are available for review in Honolulu at the DLNR Office of Conservation and Coastal Lands, Kalanimoku Building, Room 131, 1151 Punchbowl St., the Kauai District Land Office, 3060 Eiwa St. Room 306, Lihue, Kauai, the Maui, District Land Office, 54 High Street, Room 101, Wailuku Maui, and the Hawaii District Land Office, 75 Aupuni Street, Room 204, Hilo, Hawaii, between the hours of 7:45 and 4:30, Monday-Friday. The subject amendments can be mailed to parties for a fee of $1.00.

At the public hearing or within fifteen days following the close of the public hearing, any person may file with the Board a written protest or other comments or recommendations in support of or in opposition to the proposed rulemaking. The Board of Land and Natural Resources shall take final action on this rulemaking at a future regularly scheduled Board meeting.

Disabled individuals planning to attend the hearing are asked to contact the DLNR at the above address or phone Dawn Hegger at 587-0380 at least three days in advance of the public hearing to indicate if they have special needs which require accommodation.

WASTEWATER SYSTEMS
NOTICE OF
VARIANCE APPLICATION NO. W W 211
DOCKET NO. 05 - V W W - 45

Pursuant to H.R.S. §342D-7(i), Hawaii Revised   Statutes, the State Department of Health (DOH) seeks written comments from interested persons regarding the following. Smith-Waterhouse Family of Koloa, LLC c/o Devland Management Incorporated, P.O. Box 61010, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii 96839 has applied for a five (5) year variance from Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR)  Section 11-62-03 Definitions which states “Individual wastewater system means a facility which is designed to receive and dispose of no more than 1000 gallons per day of domestic wastewater. Individual wastewater   systems may involve treatment processes and include, but are not limited to, septic tanks and household   aerobic units with disposal system and cesspools. Each individual wastewater system shall be an independent system and shall have all of its plumbing, treatment (if any), and disposal components separate from any other wastewater system.” and Section 11-62-31.1(a)(2)(A) which states “Developments involving buildings other than dwellings. The wastewater flow generated shall not exceed 1000 gallons per day per 10,000 square feet of usable land area which shall not include the area under the buildings.”  The property is located at 3486 Poipu Street, Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii, and is identified as TMK (4) 2-8-001: 012.
Mr. Roy Toguchi, Senior Property Manager, PM Realty Group is the individual authorized to act for the       applicant. The applicant states that the requested     variance from HAR, Section 11-62-03 (Definitions)  stating the average daily wastewater flow, based on water use records is 830 gpd; however, the flow is variable and can reach over 1,000 gpd. Design calculations for the   replacement system, based on HAR, Section 11-62-03, are such that the replacement septic system is designed to handle flow of 3160 gpd. Requested variance is for HAR, Section 11-62-31.1(a)(2)(A), stating that area of the subject lot excluding the area under the buildings is approximately 21,310 square feet. The design flow for the replacement septic system is 3,160 gpd. The lot has one service station with two fuel dispenser islands, and the station began operation in 1968.
The applicant has made the following comments.
A. The large capacity septic system proposed to serve the facility would not comply with HAR Section 11-62-03 because the average daily wastewater flow is 830 gpd; however, the flow is variable and can reach over 1,000 gpd. The system is designed with the capability to handle 800-3,160 gpd. The   average flow is 830 gpd; however, based on     regulatory design requirements, the design flow is extremely high for the actual conditions at this site.
B. The existing large capacity cesspool(s) must be closed and replaced with a new treatment       individual wastewater system by April 5, 2005 in order to comply with federal requirements.
C. The facility has been in operation for 37 years in this location using the existing cesspool. The     installation of a wastewater treatment plant in lieu of a septic system will not be possible due to space restrictions and may force the owner to abandon the business operation.
D. The applicant believes this variance request is in the public interest because the LCC will be     upgraded to an IWS (septic system). The IWS plans will be designed by an engineer and will be submitted to DOH for review and approval. The new IWS will provide a better wastewater treatment system compared to the existing LCC. Therefore   minimizes impact to the environment.
E. Prevent loss of jobs. The LCC serving my facility has been in operation for 37 years. The current State requirements of a wastewater treatment plant would significantly add to the construction cost, as well as require a much greater ongoing maintenance cost. I (owner) may be forced to close my existing business and lay off my       employees.
F. The existing LCC will be upgraded to an IWS   (septic system). The IWS will provide a better   treatment system prior to effluent disposal. The IWS will be designed and constructed to meet the Department of Health standards. The impact to the environment will be minimized compared to the current wastewater disposal.
G. The proposed treatment individual wastewater   systems will provide greater protection than the large capacity cesspools. The proposed IWS is an improvement to the existing cesspool in terms of wastewater treatment. The septic tank will provide pretreatment and sludge removal prior to effluent disposal.
H. The existing location of the facility is severely     restrictive. There is simply no space to construct a wastewater treatment plant.
I. The variance is requested for the maximum of five (5) years.
If you would like to review the full application, please call or write to the Wastewater Branch, 919 Ala Moana Boulevard, Room 309, Honolulu, Hawaii 96814-4920, telephone (808) 586-4294 or fax (808) 586-4300 to obtain a copy or facsimile.
DOH will consider all written comments received   within thirty days of this notice. If warranted, DOH may hold a public hearing on the variance application, after a separate thirty-day public notice. The final decision will be made on the basis of the application, related     documents, written comments and the public hearing, if any.
