Kahului Harbor

Kahului Harbor

The U.S.Army Corps of Engineers is working on plans for strengthening the west breakwater of the harbor at Kahului.

According to an environmental statement prepared by the Corps, the project would be designed to repair and protect about 100 feet of the existing breakwater.

The work would involve placement of 19-ton and 35-ton chunks of concrete on the seaward face of the breakwater to buttress the structure against ocean waves. The project also would include construction of concrete ribs along the top of a portion of the breakwater.

The work is necessary, the Corps said, to prevent a break in the seawall during a future major storm.

The Corps said there would be no major environmental effects from the work. The harbor work will creat some dust and will temporarily disturb marine life in the area.
