NOTICE OF PROPOSED WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PERMIT
FOR P-904 MV-22 HANGAR AND INFRASTRUCTURE/
P-905 MV-22 AIRCRAFT STAGING AREA
NPDES PERMIT NO. HI S000371
DOCKET NO. HI S000371
January 24, 2019
The State Department of Health (DOH) tentatively proposes to renew a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit to discharge storm water associated with construction activity from the P-904 MV-22 Hangar and Infrastructure/P-905 MV-22 Aircraft Staging Area project site, to receiving State waters, subject to special conditions to:
NAVAL FACILITIES ENGINEERING COMMAND, HAWAII
400 MARSHALL ROAD
JBPHH, HAWAII 96860-3139
The proposed permit for the new discharge will expire five (5) years from the date of issuance.
The project is located on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, North of intersection of Mokapu Road and Reed Road, Kaneohe, Island of Oahu, Hawaii, TMK: (1) 4-004-008:001.
The proposed project consists of a multi-story aircraft maintenance hangar and associated supporting facilities to support inspection, service and maintenance of the squadron. Ten existing structures will be demolished to make room for the improvements. Scope includes clearing and grubbing, trenching, hangar foundation, new underground utilities, grading, parking and roadways, landscaping, driveways, walkways, hangar construction, access roads, and the MV-22 aircraft parking apron. Additional construction activities include construction of an aircraft taxiways, shoulders and substation upgrades; chilled water plant and fire pump building; site work on the storm drain box culvert and associated utility relocation; TACAN cable relocations and conduit installation; and concrete pavement installation adjacent to the hangar. NAVFAC Hawaii 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 waters, Kaneohe Bay, is classified by the DOH as Class AA, Marine Waters. Under Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Section 11-54-4, the objective of Class AA waters is to 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.
