Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS: Makua Valley (HI) environmental impact statement

The Army said it will decide by early July to what extent it will resume live-fire military training exercises in Makua Valley. The training plan was part of an environmental impact statement released yesterday.

But Malama Makua, the nonprofit organization whose lawsuit forced the Army to halt exercises in the 4,190-acre Leeward valley, said it will be back in court to stop the Army again from resuming training because the environmental assessment is flawed and incomplete.

"We don't share the Army view that this is a final copy," said Earthjustice attorney David Henkin, who represents Malama Makua. "They don't provide the legally required information," Henkin said.
