Army Corps Hosts Meeting on Harbor Dredging

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers News Release

The Honolulu District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on behalf of the Hawaii Department of Transportation Harbors Division, is hosting a community information meeting to present the construction plan for the Kaunakakai Harbor Maintenance Dredging Project. The meeting will take place on June 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Duke Maliu Regional Park Pavilion in Kaunakakai. 

Over the past year, USACE has engaged with members of the Molokai community and stakeholders to hear concerns and ensure any potential impacts on the environment, recreation or fishing were addressed in the plan. Please join us for this presentation to learn more. 

USACE is responsible for maintaining the project depths in the federal limits of Kaunakakai Harbor. The purpose of the maintenance dredging is to remove sediment that has accumulated over time, so vessels that deliver food, fuel and supplies to the island of Molokai may safely enter, exit and maneuver within the harbor. Maintenance dredging will restore the harbor to authorized depths and allow efficient and safe navigation. The harbor was last maintenance dredged in 1973.
