Army delays Makua burnings The controlled fires were meant to help complete a survey
By Gregg K. Kakesako Honolulu Star-Bulletin June 20, 2006mef
The Army has postponed a series of controlled brush fires in Makua Valley Military Reservation, further delaying an environmental impact statement that was supposed to have been completed October 2004.
It is unknown how the delay will affect the Army's $693 million military construction project to accommodate the 25th Division's new Stryker Brigade on Oahu and the Big Island. Several of the projects include renovations to Schofield Barracks training ranges similar to those in Makua.
The Army has said it needs these controlled brush fires at Makua to finish historical and cultural assessments of the 4,190-acre training range -- one of the key components of the environmental study.
The Army declined to answer questions on the status of the controlled burns or when it expects to complete the environmental impact statement. In the past, the Army has told the federal court that it would be done this spring.
