The soils with 5 feet of seven cement foundation pads of former buildings on this site are known to be contaminated with lead, chlordane, and arsenic at levels that require action to reduce potential for future exposures.

An estimated to people joined in the webinars, including consultants and regulators from over other ten states as well as staff from several USEPA Regional offices. The first webinar reviews the results of a field study of discrete soil sample variability carried out by the HEER office in see links in July posting.
The webinar series concludes with an overview of Decision Unit and Multi Increment Sample investigation methods as a new set of tools specifically designed to address errors and inefficiencies in traditional, discrete sample investigation approaches. Comments and suggestions for the webinars and the field study reports are welcome and can be sent to Roger Brewer at roger. Updates to the study reports are anticipated in the spring of The study evaluated the variability of contaminant concentrations both within discrete soil samples and between closely located sample points.
The goal of this study was to provide a better understanding of the magnitude and sources of error associated with the use of discrete soil samples for the investigation and cleanup of contaminated properties. The report was initially posted in October The HEER Office has updated this report to include additional analytical data as well as additional statistical evaluation of the data.
The updated report, dated June , including Excel files of data summary tables, can be downloaded from the links below. Part 2 of the study evaluates the sources of random variability of contaminant concentrations in discrete soil samples and discusses implications for the use of discrete soil sample data in environmental investigations.
The Deep Blue Good-By (Travis McGee, #1) by John D. MacDonald
Topics discussed include:. It is hoped that the results of this study will contribute to the current, re-evaluation of the reliability of discrete soil samples in environmental investigations and the need to move toward more technically defensible and efficient, incremental sampling methods.
The reports will be updated and amended as needed in the future. Comments and suggestions are welcome and should be provided to Roger Brewer at roger. The Iwilei District encompasses approximately acres of land in Honolulu and includes land owned privately and by the State of Hawaii. Widespread, shallow petroleum contamination related to past releases from tank farms and pipelines is the primary concern, but metals and pesticides are also present in some areas.
This document details remedial measures and controls that are consistent with EHMPs implemented at other sites in Hawaii where contamination is present. No further investigation or remedial action is required at many of these sites, provided that long-term site management requirements in the EHMP are followed.
The HEER office is sponsoring a series of webinars on topics related to environmental contamination and remediation. As your attendance is important to us, we will contact you when we re-schedule the event. Thank you for your support in our effort of UXO awareness and education. The soils on a portion of this site are known to be contaminated with arsenic and dioxins at levels that require action to reduce potential for future exposures. A 2-page fact sheet describing the site and the approved cleanup action plan, as well as the complete Final Removal Action Report describing the site, Draft Removal action plan, public comment process, and the final cleanup action plan in more detail 67 pages, Part 1 Appendix Lab reports, Part 2 are provided in the links below.
Detailed work implementation specifics will also be required for HEER Office review and approval before this cleanup action is started. The soils on a portion of this site are known to be contaminated with arsenic at levels that require action to reduce potential for future exposures. A 2-page fact sheet describing the site and the approved cleanup action plan, as well as the complete Final Removal Action Report describing the site, Draft Removal action plan, public comment process, and the final cleanup action plan in more detail 76 pages are provided in the links below.
Vanadium in Drinking Water Fact Sheet. Given the increased community concerns on Kauai and elsewhere about pesticide drift, the HEER Office has created a web page with documents and links addressing various aspects of pesticide use in Hawaii. After the public comment period, the HEER Office will carefully consider all comments received and make a final determination on actions to address contamination at this site.
Information and Updates. A Response to Comments solicited from the draft and a revised draft are available through the links below. The public notice, a site fact sheet, and the Draft Removal Action Report are available for review and comment until June 20, see links below. Soils at the site contain elevated levels of organochlorine pesticides due to past application of termiticides.
HDOH is proposing a remedy to address this hazard that combines engineering controls soil caps and geotextile marker layers with institutional controls. The official public comment period on the proposed remedy begins June 11, , and ends July 11, A fact sheet is available. The Hawaii State Department of Health is providing the following information in response to an AP story posted by the Star Advertiser on April 30 Biologist: Hanalei river, bay should be tested : The concentrations of Arsenic, barium, chromium and lead reported by Hanalei River Heritage Foundation are within anticipated, natural background levels for the volcanic soils and related sediments of the Hawaiian Islands.
The metals are naturally occurring, are tightly bound within minerals in the soil and are not toxic to humans or wildlife.

They are similar to levels of metals in soil that would be found anywhere on the islands as well as much of the world, and are not related to manmade pollution. Hanalei River Heritage Foundation incorrectly compared the sediment mud data to regulatory standards for drinking water. These are completely unrelated standards and are not applicable to metals in soil or sediment. The Hawaiian Islands background metals study has been in progress for several years and incorporates soil sample data from several technical and scientific sources.
For more information on the report see the Cover Memo. The HEER Office has completed extensive subsurface soil sampling of the former pesticide mixing and storage operation affecting three properties on Aalona Place in Kilauea on the island of Kauai. The final report is now available for public review.

The HEER Office is continuing investigation of soil contamination from a former pesticide mixing and storage operation affecting two properties on Aalona Place in Kilauea on the island of Kauai. This summer we plan to collect more than 90 samples to further delineate the areas of contamination in preparation for a removal action.
