Blasting operations at DHHL construction site in Waimea (April 18)


The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is alerting residents, business owners and nearby property owners that its contractor Blasting Technology will be conducting blasting activities Thursday, April 18, to facilitate rock excavation at the construction site for Phase 2A of the Department’s Lalamilo Subdivision, adjacent to the Waimea Transfer Station.

The public is being advised that blasting will occur between 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. 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.

Safety of the residents, surrounding property, and everyone involved on the project site is of utmost concern.

For questions or concerns about the blasting, residents may contact Blasting Technology at (808)874-5554.
