The Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) Seeks Public Comment on a Proposed Remedy for Soil and Groundwater Contamination on a Portion of the Former Waipahu Sugar Mill, Waipahu, Oahu
Sugar Mill Glen, LLC, owner of a 15.3-acre parcel that was part of the former Waipahu Sugar Mill (TMK 1-9-4-161:5), is proposing to construct industrial condominiums and commercial buildings at the site. Portions of the property are known to be affected by the halogenated volatile organic compound trichloroethylene, and diesel fuel, which Sugar Mill Glen has proposed to address. As part of the HDOH Voluntary Response Program and in accordance with regulations set forth by HDOH, Sugar Mill Glen has proposed remedial actions designed to protect human health and the environment.
The proposed remedial action is described in a Draft Response Action Memorandum for the site. Copies of the Draft Response Action Memorandum, a fact sheet, and additional information on the site are available for review at the Waipahu Public Library, 94-275 Mokuola Street, Waipahu (through May 5, 2006), or at the Hawaii Department of Health (see address below). To receive a short fact sheet about the project, or if you have questions, please call John Peard at 586-4249 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written comments regarding the proposed remediation at the site will be accepted through May 5, 2006, and should be sent by e-mail to email@example.com, or by mail to:
