SuperFerry Update

The Environmental Impact Study (EIS) is out:

"A draft environmental impact statement on harbor improvements to accommodate the Hawaii Superferry finds that the interisland vessel would adversely impact cultural activities at harbors, add to traffic, and potentially lead to the loss of natural resources and recreational activities in commercial harbors.

However, the vessel would also provide a “significant beneficial impact” on public health and safety by providing a superior type of marine transportation and help with disaster planning and emergency response."
