Permit Application Review
The Commission is in the process of transitioning to an electronic notification process for Stream Channel Alteration Permits (SCAP) and Stream Diversion Works Permits (SDWP). Full paper copies of permit applications will no longer be mailed to government agencies for review. When a permit application is ready for review, a PDF file will be posted below under the respective County heading. Each permit application will be listed by ID number and title, followed by the applicant, project summary, file size and deadline for comments. Click on the permit application ID number and title to download and/or view the application.
NOTE: Due to large file sizes, it is suggested that you save the PDF file to your computer, then open the file. Attempting to open the PDF file within your browser window, may result in slow performance or cause the browser window to freeze.

Project Summary: The proposed work includes a hand-built mānowai (loose wall of rocks in the stream) approximately 4-feet wide by 3-feet high by 15-feet long. Water will be directed into a small poʻowai (headwater) where it enters a shallow 4-inch PVC pipe-lined canal (‘auwai). A series of gravity-fed ‘auwai will irrigate the loʻi terraces. Unused water will flow through the terraces and be returned downstream, or about 80-percent. The diverted amount is estimated at 129,600 gallons per day to irrigate three acres or 23 ponds of historical taro loi.
