Advertiser Staff

Kauai County announced today that is has recently filed a petition to unseal the Ka Loko dam litigation settlement and the appendix to the settlement in the four lawsuits that followed the breakdown of Ka Loko Reservoir’s dam.

The county said it is also requesting that the court unseal the settlement agreement to reveal the amount of money that the county needs to pay and the amount to be covered by insurance proceeds.

The hearing is scheduled for Jan. 19 at 1 p.m.

“We hope the global settlement of the Ka Loko Reservoir lawsuits brings closure to those who lost loved ones, property owners who suffered damage, as well as to our island community,” said County Attorney Alfred Castillo in a statement.
