WAIMEA, HAWAIʻI — The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is alerting residents, business owners and nearby property owners that its contractor Blasting Technology will be conducting further blasting activities on Wed., Thur., Fri., Apr. 24, 25, and 26, 2013, to facilitate rock excavation at the construction site for Phase 2A of the Department’s Lālāmilo Subdivision, adjacent to the Waimea Transfer Station. This is a continuation of the blasting work done on Thu., Apr. 18.

The public is being advised that blasting will occur between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on each day. Each blast will last a second or two. Prior to each detonation, there will be a five-minute and then a one-minute warning signal. After each blast, an all-clear signal will be sounded.

Blasting results in a certain amount of noise, air movement, and tremors. The blast area will be blocked by guards and the site will be secured. The safety of the residents, surrounding property, and everyone involved in the project site is of utmost concern.

For questions or concerns about the blasting, residents may contact Blasting Technology at (808)874-5554. An official copy of the Notice of Blasting can be downloaded from the DHHL website.
