[…] the first phase and Hawaii’s largest ever wastewater tunneling endeavor – the Kaneohe-Kailua Wastewater Conveyance and Treatment Facilities Project is on track for completion this summer. The second and third phases of the project are well underway; the tunnel phase, which is especially notable as Hawaii’s first use of a tunnel boring machine (TBM), was completed in February.

The project, on the island of Oahu, is designed to increase storage capacity of the region’s wastewater system and reduce the likelihood of overflow. The Kaneohe-Kailua Wastewater Conveyance and Treatment Facilities Project is one of several that will allow Honolulu to adhere to a 2010 consent decree to improve overall island sewage treatment, explains Quang Tran, PE, Project Engineer with the project’s tunnel contractor, Southland Contracting.
