STATE OF HAWAII
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
AIRPORTS DIVISION (DOT-AIR)
The proposed permit for the new discharge will expire five (5) years from the date of issuance.

The proposed project is to construct a new Consolidated Rental Car Facility at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and involves the demolition of the interim car rental facility and the construction of a permanent five-level 1,680,000 square foot new car rental facility. Activities covered under this permit are continuous dewatering of groundwater from a fuel tank excavation, a tunnel excavation, and two bridge footings.
The receiving water, Keehi Lagoon, is classified by the DOH as Class A, Marine Waters, Embayment. It is the objective of Class A waters that their use for recreational purposes and aesthetic enjoyment be protected. Any other use shall be permitted as long as it is compatible with the protection and propagation of fish, shellfish, and wildlife, and with recreation in and on these waters. These waters shall not act as receiving waters for any discharge which has not received the best degree of treatment or control compatible with the criteria established for this class.
