Hawaii: Planned Kauai Dairy Farm Meets Opposition

April 11, 2014

A group of biologists and residents is opposing plans for a dairy farm on Kauai Island, Hawaii.

The group accuses Hawaii Dairy Farms of starting construction without proper permits and downplaying environmental impacts.

Hawaii Dairy Farms hopes to begin producing milk for customers next year on more than 580 acres in Mahaulepu.

Farm spokeswoman Amy Hennessey says the company never went outside of its permitting and it's disheartening to hear some believe the project is not doing what's right for the community.

The Garden Island reports the group of more than a dozen people sent the letter to the county earlier this month. The letter says the county should reconsider the project.

The county Public Works Department was working on a response to the letter.
