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.

Officials with the state Department of Land and Natural Resources say a trailer restroom facility is now onsite to meet the sanitation needs of park users.
