Hawaii Officials Promise Changes to Seawall Policies That Have Quickened Beach Destructionby Mindy Pennybacker and Sophie Cocke, Honolulu Star-AdvertiserDecember 31, 2020ProPublica

County officials had required a previous owner to tear out an illegal seawall in the 1990s, and the state later allowed the owner to lay a mound of emergency sandbags that blocked the public beach for the next 25 years.

When the permit for the sandbags fronting Greg Kempson’s house in Waialua expired in 2016, he said no one from the state contacted him.

Today, nearly 15 years later, the sandbags remain and the beach is largely gone.

Regulators levied small fines but authorized the sandbags after the fact.

The state approved sandbags in 2017, but the permit expired in September.
