Blasting to resume at DHHL construction site in Waimea


The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is alerting residents, business owners and nearby property owners that its contractors Goodfellow Construction and Blasting Technology will be conducting further blasting activities between July 8 and July 31, 2013 from 2:00 and 5:30 p.m. each day.

This will 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 in April.

The public is being advised that 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.
