Public Works Division - EIS Exemption Notices
Chapter 343, HRS, establishes a system of environmental review at the state and county level which will ensure that environmental concerns are given appropriate consideration in decision making along with economic and technical considerations. Hawaii’s environmental impact statement (EIS) law requires the preparation of environmental assessments and environmental impact statements for many development projects.
The law also establish procedures whereby specific types of actions, because they will probably have minimal or no significant effects on the environment, are declared exempt from the preparation of an environmental assessment. These procedures include the establishment of agency exemption lists which are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Council. Also, agencies are required to keep a record of their exemption notices which shall be made available for public review.
