County: Dairy farm up to par

From The Garden Island

LIHUE — The County of Kauai sees no reason to intervene with Hawaii Dairy Farms’ proposed $17.5 million, 582-acre dairy in Mahaulepu.

On Friday, County Engineer Larry Dill responded in writing to concerns voiced by a group of local biologists and residents. The group recently requested that the county step in and reconsider any decisions it has made or permit exemptions it has granted to HDF.

“While the County supports this effort to establish a dairy farm on Kauai, we share your concerns that the appropriate safeguards will be in place to protect the environment,” he wrote. “To date, we are satisfied that the respective agencies are exercising the appropriate regulatory oversight to meet that objective, and the county continues to monitor the project.”
