HONOLULU (AP) - There’s a lien on the property of a trucking company that illegally dumped sludge from Hawaii Kai in Waianae.

The 2013 trucking of sludge dredged from the Hawaii Kai Marina angered Waianae residents who say it was an example of their community being used as a dumping ground.

The city filed the land lien in November against the owner of SER Silva Equipment for failing to pay tens of thousands in fines.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://ow.ly/H4e2C) reports that owner Sandra Noelani Silva said Thursday she didn’t know about the lien and has been advised by her attorney not to discuss the issue.

City Deputy Planning Director Art Challacombe says if Silva continues to ignore the fines, city attorneys will begin foreclosure action.

Unpaid fines have climbed to nearly $60,000.
