The Army is asking the public to comment on its plans to study marine life near Makua Valley where commanders want to resume live-fire training.

U.S. Army Garrison, Hawaii said in a statement Tuesday the court-ordered study will determine whether military activities at Makua Military Reservation have contributed to or will contribute to the contamination of the area's marine resources.

The study will examine whether proposed Army training poses a health risk to area residents who gather food from the ocean.

The service is accepting public comments by email and mail through March 22.

The plan is available on the U.S. Army Garrison, Hawaii website and at Waianae, Kapolei and Waialua public libraries.

People may also comment at a Feb. 20 public meeting at Nanakuli High and Intermediate School.

I'd like to see a survey of how much the size of Schofield and its training areas has increased in the last 45 years. Go back to 1970, during Vietnam, when the Army was much larger. How many soldiers were stationed at Schofield in 1970 (Vietnam), 1980 (Post Vietnam), 2000 (before 9/11), and 2012? How many acres of forest and grassland have been cleared in those years for new vehicle parks, buildings, housing, and ranges? If you have not recently been to Schofield, or driven the Kolekole Pass road, you will be astounded and amount of new construction and destruction of natural areas.
