The first soil samples were collected at a property site cleared of debris in Kula, marking a milestone with the Hawaiʻi Wildfires Debris Mission. If the samples come back below the Hawaiʻi Department of Health cleanup goals, the site can be returned to the county to begin discussions with the property owner.
