Blasting operations to occur today at Waimea DHHL site


Contractor Blasting Technology will be conducting blasting activities today to facilitate rock excavation at the construction site for phase 2A of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands Lalamilo Subdivision, adjacent to the Waimea Transfer Station.

The blasting will occur from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Each blast will last a second or two. Prior to each detonation there will be a five-minute and then a one-minute warning signal. After each blast, an all-clear signal will be sounded, according to DHHL.

Blasting results in a certain amount of noise, air movement, and tremors. The blast area will be blocked by guards and the site will be secured. Safety of the residents, surrounding property, and everyone involved on the project site is of utmost concern, DHHL stated.
