(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, \u201DGeneral 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.\u201D

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.
