Blasting to resume at Waimea construction site
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 as part of rock excavation work at the construction site for the Lalamilo Subdivision.
The site is adjacent to the Waimea Transfer Station.
Blasting will occur between 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on each day. 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.
For questions or concerns about the blasting, residents may contact Blasting Technology at (808) 874-5554, or DHHL Project Manager Jeffrey Fujimoto at (808) 620-9274, or email Jeffrey.Y.Fujimoto@hawaii.gov.
An official copy of the Notice of Blasting can be downloaded from the DHHL website.
