Public Hearings


The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will hold a public hearing to receive testimony on proposed new Hawaii Administrative Rule (HAR) Chapter 13-65, Wailua Public Fishing Area, Kauai. The public hearing will be held at the Kapaa High School Library, 4695 Mailihuna Road, Kapaa, Kauai on October 12, 2006, beginning at 6:00 PM or shortly thereafter.

The purpose of the public hearing is to provide any interested person the opportunity to submit data, provide viewpoints, or to testify on the proposed new rule that would establish the Wailua reservoir as a public fishing area.
