The State of Hawaii and County of Kauai have contracted Mr. Durkin to conduct beach and ocean safety surveys and hazard assessments of island coastlines and accesses. His publication, the Kauai Beach Hazard Survey, was the first research project to study drowning, near-drowning, and aquatic trauma occurrences on Kauai back to 1970.
