ʻĪao Valley State Monument on Maui will reopen at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23, following completion of 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 park was temporarily closed for two weeks, from Jan. 11- 22, 2016 while the Division of State Parks decommissioned two large-capacity cesspools as required by the EPA, and made additional repairs and renovation to the parking lot paving and improvements to the park water system.
