Founded in 2014 in Haleʻiwa, Hawaiʻi, Shoreline Science & Engineering, LLC provides environmental consulting services focused on the coastal environment. Our multi-disciplinary team of professionals specialize in developing sustainable alternatives to challenges impacting coastal ecosystems and the built environment along our shorelines.
We also provide civil and environmental engineering services, determined on a case-by-case basis, with a geographic focus primarily on the North Shore of O’ahu.
Shoreline Science is supporting the Hawaii Kai Marina Community Association on this project which involves dredging up to 57,000 cubic yards of material with placement on two small man-made islands within the marina. In support of the project, Shoreline Science performed a marina-wide survey, evaluated soil and sediment conditions at Rim Islands No. 1 and No. 2, provided engineering design for dredge and fill operations, and construction management services.
Shoreline Science provided environmental planning and regulatory permitting for this project which involved the rehabilitation of marina guide piles and floating structures at the Makani Kai Marina in Kaneohe, HI. Shoreline Science led the permitting effort with state and federal agencies including the US Army Corps of Engineers and Hawaii Department of Health 401 Water Quality Certification. During construction, Shoreline Science provided limited construction oversight and managed water quality monitoring and environmental compliance.
Shoreline Science provided regulatory permitting and environmental planning services to the University of Hawaii's School of Ocean and Earth Technology (SOEST) in support of the proposed new floating dock at the Marine Education and Training Facility (METC) at Sand Island, Oahu, HI. The proposed dock will serve as the base for SOEST's small-vessel research program, and will be used jointly by SOEST, the UH Sailing Team, the UH Student Recreation Service, and the Honolulu Community College METC.
Shoreline Science led the development and implementation of a Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) for site soils characterization in support of the proposed multi-material recycling facility located in Kekaha on Kauai. The purpose of the SAP was to present an approach for site soil investigations to document existing (background) conditions at the Site with respect to any legacy contamination that may be present. The SAP presented the proposed methods for carrying out the sample collections, laboratory testing and analysis, QA/QC, and reporting requirements, and was reviewed and approved by multiple departments within the Hawaii Department of Health. In accordance with Hawaii Department of Health – Office of Hazard Evaluation and Emergency Response (HEER) guidelines, the SAP was developed using a “Systematic Planning Approach” consisting of multi-increment sampling methodology. The SAP was approved by the State of Hawaii Department of Health in November 2016 and the site investigations were carried out in February 2017.
Shoreline Science provided environmental planning, regulatory permitting, engineering design, and construction management services for these two similar-scoped projects in Hilo and Nawiliwili Harbors on Maui and Kauai, respectively. The projects involved the replacement of cement conveyance pipelines below Pier 1 in Nawiliwili Harbor and Pier 2 in Hilo Harbor, Hawaii. After securing the necessary environmental permits/authorizations, Shoreline Science led the engineering design and worked with the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (DOT) Harbors Division to also receive their approval to move forward with construction. As these projects moved into construction, Shoreline Science provided limited construction management and oversight including submittal review, site inspections, and final reporting to HDOT-Harbors.
Shoreline Science provided a coastal hazards evaluation for this private property located on the windward coast of Oahu in Hauula, HI. Site investigations and background research were performed to evaluate potential hazards such as coastal erosion, sea level rise, flooding, hurricanes, and tsunamis.
