ʻĪao Valley State Monument on Maui will be closed from Jan. 11-22, 2016 for various park improvements, including closures of the two large capacity cesspools in the park that were mandated via a consent agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency.

    The cesspools were servicing the park’s comfort station which was closed in 2009 due to the EPA violations, and will remain closed.

    In order to comply with these required closures, the Division of State Parks announced that it will close the monument for two two weeks to decommission the cesspools as required by the EPA, and make additional repairs and renovation to the parking lot paving and improvements to the park water system.

    When the monument reopens, a trailer restroom facility will be onsite to meet the sanitation needs for park users.

    “The park closure is necessary for State Parks to comply with environmental regulations and complete improvements of park facilities for our residents and visitors,” said Curt Cottrell, State Parks administrator in a department press release. “We appreciate the understanding from our visitors and kamaʻaina during this period of inconvenience,” he said.
