State To Host Kaunakakai Harbor Improvements Meeting

Department of Land and Natural Resources News Release

Several improvements to the Kaunakakai Harbor have been in the works, and the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), in coordination with the Department of Transportation, invites the public to attend an information meeting  regarding its proposed Maui to Molokai ferry system improvements project for the Kaunakakai Harbor.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 8, 2010, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Mitchell Pauole Center.

The proposed ferry improvements at Kaunakakai Harbor include the conversion of the existing ferry shelter into a comfort station (a new covered passenger waiting area will also be provided), installation of a new sewer lift station and 6-inch force main, which will eliminate the existing septic system and leach field; and installation of a 12-inch and 8-inch fire protection waterline.

“We encourage potential users of this system to attend the meeting,” said Laura H. Thielen, DLNR chairperson.  “This project will enhance the ferry facilities and provide the necessary supporting infrastructure for fire protection at the harbor and proper disposal of sewage to the County sewer system by eliminating an existing septic tank disposal system.”

Any person requiring special assistance (i.e. large print material, sign language interpreters etc.) is asked to contact Valerie Suzuki at (808) 587-0275.
