Lingle releases more funds for upgrades at state parks

Hawai‘i Gov. Linda Lingle has released $3,000,000 for improvements at various state parks across the state, including $2.5 million for replacement and closure of large-capacity cesspools serving users of certain state parks.

Another $250,000 was released for natural-hazard-warning signs at various facilities, she said in a press release.

The cesspool funding will help bring state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of State Parks facilities into compliance with the federal Environmental Protection Agency requirements, she said.

The funds for warning

signs will identify and miti-gate potential risks on public lands.

“These projects will increase safety for everyone who visits our beautiful state parks,” said Lingle in the release.

“Protecting the lives of residents and visitors is the most important and critical duty of our administration.”
