  • 2. January 12,2011Honorable Gary GillDeputy DirectorEnvironmental Health AdministrationState of Hawaii, Department of Health1250 Punchbowl StreetHonolulu, HI 96813Mr. Steven ChangBranch ChiefSolid and Hazardous Waste BranchState of Hawaii, Department of Health919 Ala Moana BoulevardRoom 300Honolulu, HI 96814-4920Ms. Joanna L SetoActing Branch ChiefClean Water BranchState of Hawaii, Department of Health919 Ala Moana BoulevardRoom 300Honolulu, HI 96814-4920 Re: Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill (WGSL) Storm Water DrainageDeputy Director Gary Gill and Mr. Chang and Ms. Seto:I am writing in response to Department of Health (DOH), Clean Water Branchs(CWBs) recent directive to the Department of Environmental Services (ENV) and WasteManagement Hawaii (WMH) from Mike Tsuji to post signage relating to releases ofallegedly contaminated wastewater. The City contends that such signage is not requiredby the law. However, in order to explain this position, I need to review the recent eventsand understandings leading to this recent CWB directive.Storm Event and Resultant Accumulation of Storm Water:On December 19,2010, there were heavy rains on Oahu that resulted in storm waterrunoff at WGSL. On December 20,2010, WMH contacted the DOH, Solid andHazardous Waste Branch (SHWB) as a courtesy to notify them of the established practiceof draining storm flows from as heavy as a 24-hour, 25-year storm into the storm waterdrain systems required by the WGSL Solid Waste Management Permit No. LF-0182-09(SWM Permit).
  • 3. On Tuesday, December 21,2010, CWB inspectors inspected WGSL, with the assistanceof Justin Lottig ofWMH who fully disclosed to the CWB inspectors WMHs actions inresponse to the storm. The CWB inspectors left without indicating to WMH that theyhad any concerns regarding WMHs actions.Two days after the CWB inspection, on December 23,2010, in response to WMHscourtesy notification fours days earlier, SHWB inspectors conducted an inspection ofWGSL and expressed concern that they observed that the storm water had touchedmunicipal solid waste. After speaking with Mr. Lottig, the SHWB inspectors appeared tobe less concerned with WMHs treatment of the storm water, commenting that it wasless, of a concern given the fact that the entire island was under a brown water advisory.Later that same afternoon, CWB inspectors returned for a second inspection, duringwhich they talked again with Mr. Lottig and then requested that WMH take samples ofthe storm water and discontinue the discharge of the storm water into the storm waterdrain systems. WMH complied with both requests. The test results have since beenobtained and confirm that the storm water met state and federal standards for storm waterrun off, except for naturally-occurring background concentrations of iron and zinc, whichare typically found in storm water discharges throughout Oahu.Also that afternoon on December 23,2010, Joanna Seto from the CWB contacted ENVand instructed ENV to issue a press release stating that there had been a release of stormwater that is potentially contaminated with leachate into the Ko Olina coastal area. Shesaid that this reporting requirement was similar to the requirement to issue a press releasewhen there is a sewer spill. Ms. Seto did not explain the basis for her conclusion that thestorm water was potentially contaminated with leachate, and also mistakenly equated thisevent with a wastewater discharge. ENV therefore declined, explaining that the stormwater was not leachate under the law, that draining the storm water flows was anestablished practice with which DOH was familiar, and that there was no basis forrequiring the press release. At approximately 9:41 p.m. that night, DOH issued its ownpress release advising that WGSL had "discharged a large quantity of storm waterpotentially contaminated with landfill waste to the Pacific Ocean."On January 12,2011, twenty-four days after the initial discharge of storm water, MikeTsuji from CWB contacted ENV, Division of Environmental Quality, and WMH,directing them to post signage regarding "contaminated water" from WGSL if an eventsimilar to the December 19,2010 storm occurred during the currently pending floodadvisory issued for Oahu.ENVs understanding is that the storm water from the December 19, 2010 event had not"percolated or passed through or emerged from solid waste" as defined in HawaiiAdministrative Rules section 11-58.1 and was therefore not leachate under the law.Instead, DOH believes that the storm water had some (unquantified) contact with solidwaste and that pursuant to Section G, entitled "Surface Water Management," number 2 ofthe SWM Permit "[s]tormwater that comes in contact with solid waste shall be managedand disposed of as leachate." Therefore, although the storm water itself was not leachate
  • 4. / under the law, DOH asserts that it was to be treated as leachate as provided in the SWM Pennit. Potential Public Health Emergency Created by Closure of WGSL Averted - Storm Water Disposed of into Wastewater Treatment Facilities: If the subject storm water is not drained from the areas of accumulation, WMH will not be able to continue to operate WGSL, resulting in a potential public health emergency due to restricted waste collection and disposal options for the entire island of Oahu. Therefore, notwithstanding its belief that the storm water is not leachate, at DOHs insistence, ENV agreed to assist WMH in its disposal of the accumulated storm water, via the wastewater collection system, into the Waianae and Kailua wastewater treatment facilities, thus enabling WMH to move forward with the continued operation of WGSL. This disposal requires ENV to closely coordinate and monitor the discharge to ensure that the collection system has capacity to accommodate the additional volume, and that the storm water does not impede the capacity or effective operation of the treatment plants. Because the storm water was not leachate under the law and cannot generally be disposed of in the collection system, I exercised my discretion to invoke an exception to Revised Ordinance of Honolulu (ROH) Sec. 14-1.9, "Use of public sewers--Restrictions- Violations," to justify the disposal at the treatment facilities.11] I conferred with the SHWB and CWB on January 11,2011 and all parties agreed to a plan of action to ensure continued use of WGSL via the draining of the accumulated storm water into the treatment plants so as to facilitate incremental re-opening of the impacted E-6 Cell. CWB Directive to Post Contaminated Water Signage Not Required by Law: Today, the CWB contacted ENV and WMH to demand the posting of signs warning of contaminated water discharges from WGSL, given the predicted rainfall. CWB cited no authority for this demand. but the directive implies that the storm water be treated as though it were wastewater The City finds no basis for this conclusion in law. HAR section 11-62-06(g)(5) provides in relevant part that, "[n]o person or the owner shall cause or allow any wastewater system to create or contribute to ... [w]astewater spill, overflow, or discharge into surface waters or the contamination or pollution of state waters[.]" HAR chapter 11-62, Appendix C, section 2.e requires that when there are spills from a facility, warning signs are to be posted in the areas likely to be affected by the spill and where public access is possible. We are assuming that this is the purported legal basis for CWB s directive to ENV and WMH. However, this is not applicable to the present circumstances because WGSL is not a "wastewater system" as defined by HAR section 11-62-03: "Wastewater system" means the category of all wastewater and wastewater sludge treatment, use, and disposal systems, including all wastewater treatment works,
  • 5. collection systems, wastewater sludge facilities, recycled water systems, and individual wastewater systems.The drainage system at WGSL is not a wastewater treatment, use or disposal system. Infact, as indicated above, pursuant to its SWM Permit, WGSL is required to and does havea surface water management system in place. SHWB recognized that there would berunoff resulting from storm events at WGSL and therefore required the "design,construction and maintenance of a surface water run-on and run-off control system." If,as CWB contends, all runoff from WGSL is automatically "wastewater" then there wouldhave been no provision for a surface water drainage system, but instead, all surface waterrunoff would have been directed to the sewer system. The fact that DOH instead requiredthe surface water drainage system directly negates the characterization of runoff aswastewater.CWBs requirement to post signs is particularly unsettling to ENV because it is the firsttime since WGSL began operations that CWB is communicating to ENV and WMH whatappears to be its conclusion that storm water runoff from WGSL is leachate, thereforewastewater, and therefore requires regulation pursuant to HAR chapter 11-62.We are concerned by what we perceive as a series of unreasonable demands without anyarticulated basis in DOHs legitimate regulatory authority. SHWB asserted first, thataccumulated storm water is leachate that may not be pumped into the storm drain system,but must be disposed of at the treatment plants. Then, today, CWB asserts even morebroadly that WGSLs storm water runoff requires the posting of warning signs as if itwere wastewater. These conclusions are not supported by the facts or the law, and arecontrary to the measures that ENV and WMH have taken over the years, at DOHsdirection and/or with DOHs approval. (We are in possession of CWBs latest email,sent at approximately 4:00 today, which incorrectly purports to reiterate mattersdiscussed and agreed upon between DOH and ENV, including additional requirementsrelating to storm water management at WGSL. We will address the contents of this emailtomorrow.)ENV and WMH sincerely appreciate SHWBs and CWBs cooperation to the extent thatit is directed at facilitating removal of the accumulated storm water to enable continueduse of WGSL and to avert the public health disaster of having to shut down solid wastecollection and disposal due to closure of WGSL. To this end, so that we may mostappropriately dispense with the accumulated storm water and manage future runoff in away that ensures continued operation of WGSL, we request that the CWB consult withSHWB and vice versa and that both DOH branches consult with their respective deputyattorneys general prior to imposing requirements upon ENV and WMH. We remainready, willing, and able to meet with DOH, and look forward to all parties working fromthe same set of assumptions and understandings, for maximum protection of public healthand safety.

Normal landfill operations have been stopped due to the heavy rains which caused localized flooding of the landfill. The landfill will not be able to receive any trash for disposal until the accumulated stormwater is removed. Stormwater may be discharged for several days, but will be monitored, water samples analyzed, and warning signs posted. The Department of Health, City and County of Honolulu, and Waste Management are working together to minimize any environmental or health risks.
