  • Special Joint Public Notice: 2023 HI SMMP

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu Engineer District (USACE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX (EPA) have prepared a revised Site Management and Monitoring Plan (SMMP) for the five existing Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Sites (ODMDSs) serving Hawai‘i: South O‘ahu, Hilo, Port Allen, Nawiliwili, and Kahului. The five existing Hawaii ODMDSs were designated by EPA in 1981 based on a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) issued in 1980, and the SMMP covering these five sites was last updated in 2015. SMMPs describe the coordinated approach by which EPA and USACE manage each ODMDS to ensure that significant adverse impacts to the environment or uses of the ocean do not occur.
