Schatz Statement On Ala Wai Project


HONOLULU – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on the Army Corps’ decision to acknowledge community concerns and consider improvements to the project.

“We are pleased that the Army Corps is showing some flexibility, and that they are listening to community concerns. We still have a long way to go. This will require that we rebuild trust and listen to each other, but this is nevertheless good news for all involved. This will help us to honor our commitment to keep people in the Ala Wai watershed safe from flood risk in the era of climate change.”
