DHHL NEWS RELEASE: Princess Kahanu Estates Sewer Improvement Work

Posted on Dec 28, 2020 in Latest News, Newsroom

(Waiʻanae, Oʻahu) – The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) is scheduled to begin sewer improvement work in the Princess Kahanu Estates Subdivision in Waiʻanae, Oʻahu beginning in early January 2021.

Through its field engineering consultants, Control Point Survey Hawaiʻi and Hirata & Associates, the Department will upgrade the underground sanitary sewer systems for compliance with City and County of Honolulu requirements. The project’s goal is to provide a higher level of wastewater service to area homestead residents.

Fieldwork is anticipated to include surface and underground utility surveys, as well as soil testing, which will require crews to drill along existing sewer lines. The work will be done within the public and private roadways, as well as the properties with easement sewers.

Work will be conducted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with occasional weekend activity. The project is estimated to be completed by the end of July 2021, weather permitting.

Residents in the area should anticipate limited temporary traffic control and general construction noise during the work hours.

Princess Kahanu Estates lessees have been notified via letter that fieldwork is scheduled for their area.
