EPA Orders Bali Hai Villas to Correct Storm Water Violations

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ordered Bali Hai Villas Ltd., to comply with Clean Water Act requirement at its residential construction site on Kauai.

According to the EPA, the company failed to implement stormwater pollution controls.

In September, EPA inspectors found the company failed to install adequate control measures to prevent soil and sediment filled stormwater from running off the site.

The EPA orders the company to install stormwater pollution controls at all exposed soil and locations where stormwater runoff could leave the project site.  The company also needs to repair its silt fence, protect soil stockpiles from runoff, provide a contained and lined concrete wash area and clean up litter on the site.

If the company fails to comply with the order, it could face fines of up to $32,500 per day per violation.

An EPA official says the company was previously cited for similar issues at the site.
