NOTICE OF PROPOSED WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PERMIT
FOR KAHANAHOU WASTEWATER PUMP STATION UPGRADE AND
SEWER IMPROVEMENTS – PUMP STATION UPGRADE
NPDES PERMIT NO. HI S000542
DOCKET NO. HI S000542
March 1, 2018
The State Department of Health (DOH) tentatively proposes to issue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit to discharge stormwater associated with construction activity from the Kahanahou Wastewater Pump Station Upgrade and Sewer Improvements – Pump Station Upgrade project site, to receiving State waters, subject to special conditions to:
CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU (CCH)
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES (ENV)
WASTEWATER ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION DIVISION
1000 ULUOHIA STREET, SUITE 308
KAPOLEI, HAWAII 96707
The proposed permit for the new discharge will expire five (5) years from the date of issuance.
The project is located at 45-13 Ka Hanahou Place, Kaneohe, Island of Oahu, Hawaii, TMKs (1) 4-005-047:094, 095, and 127.
The proposed project consists of renovation of the existing pump building, construction of a generator building; below grade diversion valve/meter vault; above ground fuel tank; force main piping and sewer manholes, pavement and curbs; and chain link fencing and driveway gate. CCH-ENV requests to discharge storm water runoff from the proposed construction site. Best Management Practices (BMPs) for storm water runoff and non-storm water sources will be implemented to minimize the discharge of erosion and other pollutants from entering receiving State waters.
The receiving water is classified by the DOH as Class AA, Marine Water. Under Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Section 11-54-4, the objective of Class AA waters remain in their natural pristine state as nearly as possible with an absolute minimum of pollution or alteration of water quality from any human-caused source or action.
Persons wishing to comment upon or object to the proposed NPDES permit or to request a public hearing, should submit their comments or requests in writing no later than 30 calendar days after the date of this notice, either through E-mail at email@example.com or by mail at P.O.
