Carroll talks about a nation of laws and a nation of flaws, and how we now are learning firsthand about the big lies. Callers comment about the new political climate. It looks like we are all becoming victims and everyone is a target. It is time to become one family.
The second hour a caller discusses the Draft eEnvironmental Impact Assessment under review for the proposed development of an Oahu SPCA animal sanctuary in the wetland area of Kahalu'u. The wetland is in a Special Management Area and does not have sewer hookups, so will use septic tanks. They will be situated approximately 200 yards from Kaneohe Bay. The roads,
parking lots and buildings will cover approximately 300 acres, causing damaging runoff. Also, the road will block the flow of incoming water so eventually the wetland may dry up. For more information and to make comments, see the Hawaii Department of Health, Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC) website at www.oeqc.doh.hawaii.gov and download Environmental Notice for 2/8/17. The following Information is
on page 7:
"The OSPCA proposes to develop an animal sanctuary in Kahalu'u on the Windward Coast of O'ahu. The sanctuary will rehabilitate
and find a home for stray or mistreated animals. It will be located at 47-630 Kamehameha Highway, on the mauka side of
the highway between Waihe'e and Wailehua Roads. The site will access Kamehameha Highway directly via a single driveway.
The facility will consist of two rigid tent agricultural structures, with a total floor area of 7,840 square feet (including outside
deck and walkway). The Project will also include a 40-space parking lot of compacted soil, a septic tank, a solar and diesel
generator, and 830 linear feet of fencing. The Project will contain 80 kennels for rescued dogs in one structure; the other structure
will accommodate 100 rescued cats in ten kennels. On-site staff will include about five full-time and three part-time
staffers, and four on-site volunteers. The animal sanctuary will operate seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m."
There is also a nice picture of the area on page 10. The wetland needs your help. Comments are due March 10, 2017. Please contact email@example.com
Special Note: Page 8 of the OEQC document contains information about the proposed dairy farm on Kauai we have been talking about.
