Directions: SAND ISLAND SRA CAMPGROUND TO BE AFFECTED BY ONGOING SEWER FORCE MAIN PROJECT
Work will continue around the clock
HONOLULU, Sept. 25, 2014-- An ongoing sewer main installation will force the closure of Camp area A at Sand Island SRA. The project entails drilling beneath Honolulu Harbor to install an underground sewer main. Due to the the technology required for the drilling, it must now continue 24 hours a day for the forseeable future. This will cause noise impacts to park day users and particularly, overnight campers. Camp Area A, closest to the drilling, will therefore be closed to camping for the duration of the project. The other camp areas B and C are further from the drilling site and will remain open for weekend camping, but will still suffer from noise impacts due to the project. We apologize for the inconvenience.
