Proposed Cleanup: Hakalau Pesticide Storage/Mixing Site (comments 5/15/2013 – 6/20/2013)

Posted on May 1, 2013 in All, Cleanup Highlights

The HEER Office is inviting public review and comment on proposed cleanup actions at the former Hakalau/Pepeʻekeo pesticide storage/mixing site at Hakalau on Hawaiʻi Island (TMKs 3-2-9-002-079 and 3-2-9-002-081). The soils on a portion of this site are known to be contaminated with arsenic at levels that require action to reduce potential for future exposures. The public notice, a site fact sheet, and the Draft Removal Action Report (RAR) are available for review and comment until 6/20/2013 (see links below). After the public comment period, the HEER Office will carefully consider all comments received and make a final determination on actions to address contamination at this site.
