The Army announces the availability of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and the start of the public review and comment period for Army Training Land Retention at Pōhakuloa Training Area on the island of Hawai‘i. The Draft EIS has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), guided by Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) Parts 1500–1508; Title 32 C.F.R. Part 651 (Environmental Analysis of Army Actions); and the Hawai‘i Revised Statutes Chapter 343 and Hawai‘i Administrative Rules Chapter 11-200.1, collectively referred to as the Hawai‘i Environmental Policy Act (HEPA).
The Draft EIS is a joint NEPA-HEPA document; therefore, the public review processes run concurrently and jointly meet NEPA and HEPA requirements. A notice of availability has been published in the Federal Register to announce the start of the public review and comment period. The Draft EIS has also been published in the State Environmental Review Program’s publication, The Environmental Notice. The joint NEPA-HEPA Draft EIS 60-day public comment period starts on April 8, 2022 and ends on June 7, 2022. Comments will not be accepted after 11:59 p.m. Hawai‘i Standard Time on June 7, 2022.
