The Honolulu District, US Army Corps of Engineers scheduled a second virtual public meetings today to provide residents information on proposed repairs for the ʻĪao Flood Control Project.

The meeting coincides with the release of the draft environmental assessment and the draft engineering documentation report for the ʻĪao FCP that addresses a severe erosion design deficiency experienced by the existing system.

USACE seeks to involve the public and solicit feedback on the proposed repairs to the FCP.
