The trucking company responsible for dumping dredged material from the Hawaii Kai Marina onto a private agricultural property in Waianae likely will be denied a permit to keep it there and be required return it to East Honolulu or face escalating fines, a city official told members of the City Council Intergovernmental Affairs and Human Services Committee on Thursday.
Meanwhile, city Deputy Planning Director Art Challacombe confirmed that his agency first warned the trucking company that its dumping of sludge in Waianae was a violation 11 days before an Aug. 31 accident in which one of the company’s trucks spilled dredged material onto H-1 freeway, causing a major traffic jam.
