What updates are available on the Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS)?
The Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared pursuant to Chapter 343, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (HRS), and Title 11, Chapter 200.1, Hawai‘i Administrative Rules (HAR), Department of Health (DOH), State of Hawai‘i.
The report covers matters such as: archaeological, cultural, flora and fauna, geotechnical, noise, engineering, hazardous materials, traffic, and economic considerations.
The Final EIS is scheduled to be completed in Summer of 2021.
The State will get the Programmatic EIS completed and approved. If supplemental EIS’ or further environment assessments are required, this will be the responsibility of Real Estate Co to obtain.
Copies of the EIS can be accessed at www.nased.Hawaii.gov
