Isle concrete suppliers forced to import sand

Source: Honolulu Advertiser

At Barbers Point Harbor, the Panamax ship Sophie Oldendorff dumps sand from British Columbia ordered by Hawaiian Cement.


Every few months since late last year, a Panamax cargo ship filled to the brim with sand has sailed from Canada to Hawai'i to deliver a natural resource that seemingly is in abundance throughout these islands surrounded by sandy shores.

The granules, grayish-tan in color, aren't for Isle beaches or golf courses. They're for another important use: construction.
