HONOLULU (KHNL) - The City and County of Honolulu delivers its response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's tentative decision to deny continuation of a waiver from full secondary treatment for the Honouliuli Wastewater Treatment Plant.
"We have made a very strong case for continuation of the waiver that's been in place for nearly two decades," said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. "I want to personally thank the residents of Honolulu who attended our community meetings to learn more about our position and who took the time to share their comments with the EPA."
In its response, the City refutes EPA's findings and conclusions and presents information they say, supports the agency's reversal of its tentative decision.
