                       MAYOR'S LANDFILL COMMITTEE RECONVENES NOVEMBER 8

 

(Mon., Oct. 31, 2011) The Mayor's Advisory Committee on Landfill Site Selection reconvenes meetings November 8 at 9 a.m. in the Mayor's Conference Room at Honolulu Hale.

 

Two meetings in August were postponed as the nine-member Committee asked the consultant, R.M. Towill Corporation, to investigate potential landfill sites within Oahu's Underground Injection Control (UIC) Line and No Pass Zone.

 

The investigation of potential landfill sites within the UIC Line and No Pass Zone required the consultant to contact and coordinate between numerous governmental agencies, including the Board of Water Supply, the Solid Waste and Safe Drinking Water branches of the State Department of Health (DOH), and the State Commission on Water Resource Management.

 

The consultant will present the findings, discuss next steps and finalization of the outline for final report, and set up the Committee's next meeting.  The group will meet at least one more time to weigh the criteria and apply it to the potential landfill sites.  The date and time of that particular meeting is to be determined.
