MEDIA RELEASE

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz has announced a $3.47 million grant to go towards replacing an important water pipeline near Hilo.

The funds will go to the county and Kahuku Development Foundation, Inc. for a pipeline in Papaikou, ensuring safer, clean water and providing adequate water flow for fire protection.

“Water infrastructure requires special attention, expertise, and maintenance on our neighbor islands,” Schatz said. “This federal money will help communities near Hilo have clean, safe water for their children and families, and it will help them be protected in case of fire.”

As chairman of the Subcommittee on Water and Power, Schatz is working to improve Hawaii’s water infrastructure to ensure that all of families have clean, safe water.

In August 2013, Schatz brought together experts and community leaders to the State Capitol auditorium in Honolulu for a productive discussion about the state of Hawaii’s water infrastructure and the future of its water supply.

In addition, Schatz is actively engaged in expanding hydropower and the important role that water plays in energy production.
