NOTICE OF PROPOSED WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PERMIT
FOR KAHUKU SHRIMP COMPANY
NPDES PERMIT NO. HI 0021059

06-CW-PW-08

February 17, 2006

The State Department of Health (DOH) tentatively proposes to issue a National   Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit to discharge aquacultural wastewater from the Kahuku Shrimp Company (Facility) to the Pacific Ocean, subject to special conditions to:
KAHUKU SHRIMP COMPANY, INC.

The proposed permit will expire on October 31, 2010.

The facility is an aquaculture farm located near Kahuku Point, Kahuku, Oahu,      Hawaii. The facility consists of 52 enclosed raceway and 8 ponds. The facility harvests an annual maximum of 650,000 pounds of shrimp (Penaeus vannami, P. Stylirostris) and 300,000 pounds of fish (Tilapia aurea, T. Mozambica). Saline groundwater wells provide the water to the facility and a maximum of 130,000 pounds of food is used monthly. Aquacultural wastewater enters the Pacific Ocean near the abandoned Kahuku Airfield through Outfall Serial No. 001 at coordinates: Latitude 21°42’07”N and       Longitude 157°57’33”W.

A Zone of Mixing has been requested for the assimilation of aquaculture wastewater. The proposed Zone of Mixing is a rectangularly shaped area which extends 2,000 feet northwest, 3,000 feet southeast, and to the 40-foot depth contour approximately 3,000 feet offshore of Outfall Serial No. 001. The proposed Zone of Mixing shall extend     vertically from the surface to the ocean floor.

The Pacific Ocean is classified by the Department of Health as Class A Wet Open Coastal Waters under Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Section 11-54-06(b)(2)(B). The uses to be protected are all uses compatible with the protection and propagation of fish, shellfish, and wildlife, and with recreation in and on these waters. This class of water shall not act as receiving waters for any discharges which have not received the best degree of treatment or control compatible with the criteria established for this class.

Persons wishing to comment upon or object to the proposed NPDES permit, or to   request a public hearing, should submit their comments or requests in writing no later than 30 days after the date of this notice, either in person or by mail, to:

COMMUNITY NOISE VARIANCE
(Docket No. 04-NR-VN-15)
for the Haleiwa Waterline Replacement

Honolulu Board of Water Supply, 630 South Beretania Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96843, has applied to the     Department of Health for a variance from Hawaii       Administrative Rules, Chapter 11-46, Section 11-46-6(a), which states, ”General Prohibition. Without a permit or variance issued pursuant to section 11-46-7 or 11-46-8, no person within the State shall operate, from any premises or land owned, rented, leased, occupied, or controlled by that person, any excessive noise source.”

The applicant proposes to install approximately 2,900 feet of water line on Kamehameha Highway between Cane Haul Road and Opaeula Road and along Achiu Lane on the island of Oahu.

The applicant would like to conduct the construction-related activities from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Chapter 11-46 will not allow a noise permit to be     issued during the requested hours, thus a variance is   being requested from the noise limits for approximately 150 days.

Written comments and requests for information or   inspection of the variance application and related   documents should be directed to: State of Hawaii     Department of Health Noise, Radiation and Indoor   Quality Branch, 591 Ala Moana Boulevard, Honolulu,  Hawaii 96813-4921, telephone (808) 586-4700.

The Department of Health will retain and consider all written comments received not later than thirty (30) days after the date of this notice. If the comments received warrant it, the Department may hold a public hearing,  after at least thirty (30) days public notice, on the     variance application.  The final decision will be made on the basis of the application, related documents, written comments and the public hearing, if any.
