The Environmental Protection Agency recently released an environmental assessment of a major project: the replacement of a large cesspool on the Big Island that serves thousands of people in the Pahala area. 

The Conversation spoke with Kathleen Johnson from the EPA's region 9 about the need to move forward on the project that has been years in the planning and whose federal funding expires in two years.

Catherine Cruz is the host of The Conversation. Originally from Guam, she spent more than 30 years at KITV, covering beats from government to education. Contact her at ccruz@hawaiipublicradio.org.
