Soiltac Application on Maui

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is applying Soiltac, a soil stabilizer, to the ash and debris footprints of burned buildings and vehicles to minimize dust generated when people return to their properties. The application of this stabilizer to ash and debris also minimizes the movement of ash and debris – and potential contaminants of concern – through the air and into local waterways and occupied properties.

For questions about EPA support for Maui wildfire response, call our hotline (808) 539-0555 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. HT daily or email R9WildfiresInfo@epa.gov.
