Army seeks community input into Makua Beach study

The Army is seeking community input during a 60-day public comment period from Feb. 1 to April 3 on a study of marine resources near Makua Beach.

The study supplements a 2009 marine resources study, and assesses whether military training activities at Makua Military Reservation pose a health risk to area residents who rely on marine resources for food or other purposes. It was completed in compliance with a 2012 U.S. District Court order.

Comments can be emailed to, or mailed to:
U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii, Environmental Division
Attn: Marine Study – Public Comments
948 Santos Dumont Ave.
Schofield Barracks, HI 96857

Mailed comments must be postmarked no later than April 3.

Comments can also be provided during a public meeting March 5 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Waianae High School.

The study is available online at; click on “2013 MR Study.”

It’s also available at the Waianae, Kapolei, Wahiawa and Waialua public libraries under the title “Makua Marine Resources Supplemental Study Report, February 2015.” Printed copies are available upon request.

For questions, please call (808) 656-3089 or email
