Kalaupapa Fuel Facility Project

National Park Service News Release

The National Park Service is proposing to construct a new fuel facility at Kalaupapa National Historical Park.  The purpose is to provide a reliable fuel facility that is safe, easily serviceable, complies with federal regulations, and is outside of the tsunami inundation zone.  The work will include the installation of five 5,000-gallon modular, above ground, double-walled fuel storage tanks, a fuel dispensing and monitoring system, site clearing and grubbing, a concrete pad to support the fuel tanks and appurtenances, road improvements to safely fuel vehicles and deliver fuel to tanks, and an extension of telecommunications and electrical service to the site to control the dispensing system. Construction is planned to start in the fall of 2024.  

Civic engagement is an opportunity for the public to comment on the project.  The civic engagement period is Sept. 1 to 30 and the public can learn more and comment at parkplanning.nps.gov/KALAFuelFacility.

Once the NPS has gathered public input on the proposed action and finished analyzing the effects, staff will complete environmental compliance.  A categorical exclusion is being considered per the National Environmental Policy Act.
