Welcome to the official website for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Army Training Land Retention (ATLR) of State Lands at Kahuku Training Area (KTA), Kawailoa-Poamoho Training Area (Poamoho), and Makua Military Reservation (MMR) on the island of Oʻahu, called “Oʻahu ATLR EIS” for short. This website shares information about the Proposed Action and provides an opportunity for the public to get involved and stay informed.

Project Overview

The Army proposes to retain up to approximately 6,322 acres of State-owned lands at KTA, Poamoho, and MMR on the island of Oʻahu. The Proposed Action is a real estate action that would enable continued military use of the State-owned lands at these three installations on Oʻahu.

A Draft EIS has been prepared under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Hawai‘i Environmental Policy Act (HEPA). Both NEPA and HEPA ensure environmental concerns are given appropriate consideration in decision-making, along with economic and technical considerations. Public input is a valued part of the NEPA and HEPA processes.
