The existing Kekaha Municipal Solid Waste Landfill (MSWLF) is projected to reach capacity in 2014. Therefore, the County of Kaua`i, Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Division, is proposing a vertical expansion. A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to identify and address potential environmental impacts of the proposed action. The purpose of the proposed action, to vertically expand the currently permitted Phase II area and the proposed Cell 2 lateral expansion, is to prolong the life of the KLF and provide for continued safe disposal of MSW on the Island of Kaua`i.
A community meeting was held on Monday, July 22, 2013 at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center to obtain public input on the Draft EA. During the meeting, the proposed action was summarized, the EA process was explained, and the public was encouraged to provide comments on the Draft EA. Comments received at the meeting are listed in the document below.
