City Files Lien Against Hawaii Kai Sludge Dumper in Waianae

WAIANAE — Community residents say the City is moving in the right direction, as it enforces stronger illegal dumping laws in Waianae Valley by placing a lien for unpaid civil fines on agricultural property where sludge from the Hawaii Kai Marina was illegally dumped.

Introduced by Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine, Bills 35, 36 and 37, often referred to as the ‘Environmental Justice’ Bills, stiffen fines and provide the Department of Planning and Permitting Director with discretion to pursue civil and criminal court actions in their enforcement. The bills were signed into law by Mayor Caldwell on October 23, 2014

According to the Department of Planning and Permitting, the Silvas, owners of the Waianae agricultural property, have been fined a total of $58,050 since December 2013. At this time, none have been paid, and the City has continued to assess daily fines on the Silva’s property.  Continue reading
