Speaker: Dr. Janice Marsters Senior Environmental Engineer Kennedy/Jenks Consultants,
Subject: Kalaupapa Harbor Repair
Kalaupapa, Moloka‘I harbor repair consisted of design and construction of critical repairs to the damaged breakwater, pier, low dock, and bulkhead wall. The project included removing displaced armor stones from the barge berthing basin, and increasing protection of the structures through the placement of larger armor stones. Failure of the bulkhead wall could have damaged the historically significant Community Food Warehouse, adding to the project urgency. The project required extensive environmental permitting and compliance, due to the fragile ecosystem of Kalaupapa Harbor and the immediately surrounding areas. Special considerations included the presence of coral on many of the structures, and the proximity of the project to monk seal haul-out and pupping beaches.
Dr. Janice Marsters is a Senior Environmental Engineer with the Hawaii office of Kennedy/Jenks Consultants, where she manages the office’s environmental consulting practice, working mostly in storm water management and engineering, environmental planning and permitting, and sustainability.
