Final EIS – TMT Observatory Project

Media Release:

The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo (UH Hilo) in its capacity as the proposing agency for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) Project has approved the publication of the Final EIS.  The notice of availability has been published in the May 8, 2010, edition of The Environmental Notice.  A copy of the Final EIS is available for download at www.TMT-HawaiiEIS.org.

The Final EIS identifies the “13-North” (13N) site as the Project, as the Draft EIS did, and this site remains the focus of the Final EIS.  The selection of the 13N site was based on consideration of the impacts of both the 13N site and the Project alternatives considered.

The acceptance of the Final EIS by the Governor of Hawai‘i completes the Project’s compliance with the EIS law (Hawai‘i Revised Statutes, Chapter 343) and the EIS rules (Hawai‘i Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 200).  Therefore, you will not receive any further notifications regarding the Project.  You can continue to follow the Project at www.tmt.org.
