SAND ISLAND SRA PARK AND CAMPGROUND TO BE AFFECTED BY ONGOING SEWER FORCE MAIN PROJECT

An ongoing sewer main installation will impact various areas within Sand Island SRA. The project entails drilling beneath Honolulu Harbor to install an underground sewer main.  This will cause noise impacts to park day users and possibly, overnight campers. Camp area A is closest to the drilling.  The other camp areas B and C are further from the drilling site but all will remain open for weekend camping, and may suffer from noise impacts due to the project. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Description

Sand Island State Recreation Area offers weekends-only shoreline camping within a heavily industrialized area very close to the urban core of Honolulu and the flight path of the Honolulu International Airport. This park is also adjacent to the Sand Island Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) day use riding area, which contains tracks and trails for motorized OHV’s and non-motorized BMX bikes.

Sand Island is an arid, urban coastal park which offers picnicking, camping, walking, shore fishing and board surfing. It fronts a small sand beach and has good views of Honolulu Harbor and ocean sunsets. (14.0 acres)
