The proposed NPDES permit for the existing discharge will expire five (5) years from the date of issuance.
The Delta Air Lines, Inc. Hawaii facilities include the Delta Cargo facility located at 3121 Aolele Street; Ground Service Equipment (GSE) maintenance shop located at 350 Aolewa Place; Unit Load Device (ULD) shop located within the Air Operations Area; and Gates E3, E5, E7, & G1 located within Concourses E and G, respectively; at the Daniel K.

Inouye International Airport and are classified under Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes 4512, Air Transportation, Scheduled; 4581, Airports, Flying Fields, and Services; and 7538, General Automotive Repair Shops. Activities include cargo loading and unloading operations; fueling and maintenance of ground service equipment; vehicle, equipment, and material storage; waste handling and disposal. Best Management Practices for storm water runoff and non-storm water sources will be implemented to minimize the discharge of erosion and other pollutants from entering receiving State waters.
The receiving water, Kaloaloa Canal at 21.331569°N latitude, 157.905589°W longitude and 21.330689°N latitude, 157.907013°W longitude, is classified by the DOH as Class 2, Inland Water. The objective of Class 2 waters is to protect their use for recreational purposes, the support and propagation of aquatic life, agricultural and industrial water supplies, shipping, and navigation. The uses to be protected in this class of waters are all uses compatible with the protection and propagation of fish, shellfish, and wildlife, and with recreation in and on these waters. These waters shall not act as receiving waters for any discharge which has not received the best degree of treatment or control compatible with the criteria established for this class.
