Hawai‘i Delegation Statement On Red Hill WAI Report
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawai‘i) and Representatives Ed Case (D-Hawai‘i) and Jill Tokuda (D-Hawai‘i) issued the following statement on the report released today by the Red Hill Water Alliance Initiative (WAI).
“As we’ve worked to secure the federal resources needed for defueling and closing Red Hill, we have consistently pushed to ensure DOD, EPA, and other federal agencies are responsive to community input. This report underscores the importance of continued collaboration between all levels of government throughout this process to ensure we protect the environment and Oahu’s drinking water. As this process moves forward, we will continue working as a delegation to ensure Hawaii has the resources it needs and that the federal government, working with the state and local governments in Hawaii, meets its obligation to keep our communities and environment safe.”
