DLNR releases statement regarding an EIS for A&B’s East Maui Water Lease Preparation

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) has received numerous comments from concerned members of the public regarding the Environmental Impact Statement Preparation Notice (EISPN) for a water lease in East Maui filed by Alexander & Baldwin Inc. and East Maui Irrigation Company, Limited.  The overwhelming majority of comments requested that DLNR conduct the EIS instead of the private applicant.  However, pursuant to Section 343-5(e), Hawaii Revised Statutes, when an applicant proposes an action that requires the approval of an agency, the agency must require the applicant to prepare the EIS.

DLNR encourages public participation in the environmental review process on this important matter.  However, in order to ensure that any comments are reviewed and considered in the environmental review process, please also submit them in writing to the following party:
