The Department of Health (DOH) proposes to modify a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit to discharge to receiving State Waters.
This permit, issued to Pacific Shipyard International, LLC, is being modified under allowance by Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), 11-55-16 and Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR), 122.62(a)(2). The proposed major modifications include incorporating additional storm water outfalls and updated requirements for storm water associated with industrial activity, clarifying allowable discharges and adding best management practices associated with the allowable discharges.
The expiration of the NPDES permit shall remain as May 28, 2022.
In accordance with 40 CFR 124.5(c)(2) and 122.62, only the conditions outlined above shall be reopened. All other conditions shall remain in effect for the duration of the permit. Please note that you may only comment or request a public hearing on the modified/reopened items described above.
Persons wishing to comment upon or object to the draft modified 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 2827 Waimano Home Road, Room 225, Pearl City, Hawaii 96782.
Copies of the draft modified permit and other information are available for public inspection, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) from 7:45 a.m. until 4:15 p.m., at the DOH Clean Water Branch (CWB) office located at the 2827 Waimano Home Road 225, Pearl City, Hawaii 96782. Copies may be bought. The public notice permit and fact sheet are also available on the internet at:

For more information or if you require aid in inspecting and/or commenting on the public notice permit and related information, please contact Mr. Darryl Lum, Supervisor of the Engineering Section, CWB, at the above address or (808) 586-4309 (Voice) at least seven (7) calendar days before the comment deadline. For those who use a TTY/TDD, please call through Sprint Relay Hawaii, at 1-711 or 1-877-447-5991.
All written comments and requests received on time will be considered. If DOH determines that there is significant public interest, a public hearing may be held after at least 30 calendar days of public notice.
If DOH’s position is substantially unchanged after considering all timely written comments and all oral comments at any public hearing that may be held, then the DOH will issue the NPDES permit and this action will be final.
Please notify anyone you know who would be interested in this matter.
