Plan Made For Waikoloa Maneuver Area Unexploded Ordnance by Big Island Video News (HI) May 19, 2019 A new plan that will be shown this week to Hawaiian Homes Commissioners proposes to address the residual risks of unexploded ordnance within the Waikoloa Maneuver Area and boost the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands’ ability to develop affordable housing. From 1943 to 1946, the United States Marines used the Waikoloa Maneuver Area for “live fire” training. It is estimated that approximately 10% of the explosive ordnance failed to detonate, which means there is a potential explosive hazard across at least 120,000 acres of land. Today, the United States Army Corp of Engineers continues to investigate and remove the unexploded ordnance, or UXO, from the Waikoloa Maneuver Area, or WMA. Cleanup of the entire WMA will cost approximately $720 million, but with a current annual budget of $10 million it will take another seven decades to complete the work. … For the entire story, see https://www.bigislandvideonews.com/2019/05/19/waikoloa-maneuver-area-unexploded-ordnance-update/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
