Court says Army failed to test seaweed and other marine resources in Makua

The AP reports:

A federal judge has ruled the Army’s study of contamination of seafood harvested near Makua Valley was satisfactory except for two ways.

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Oki Mollway ruled the Army didn’t test seaweed and other marine life eaten by residents of the Waianae Coast to determine whether they pose health risks from live-fire military training at Makua.


Friday’s ruling says the Army violated the settlement agreement by only testing species of seaweed that Waianae residents don’t eat and not testing “other marine resources” such as octopus and sea cucumber.
