|The Ala Wai Watershed drains into a two-mile long, twelve-acre,
manmade canal that separates Waikiki from much of urban Honolulu.
The canal is not expected to attain or maintain State water quality
standards without additional action to control NPS pollution.
||To develop a community-based stewardship program in the Ala Wai
||• Form committees among business agencies, non-profit organizations,
other project managers, environmental organizations, etc.
• Conduct seven town meetings to develop project proposals and further
refine the vision
• Develop and conduct two watershed-wide summits to expand community participation
• Fund 15 community projects, including streambank restoration, taro loi
restoration, native Hawaiian plant gardens, illegal dumping mitigation, water
quality testing, wetlands restoration, community watershed education, environmental
curriculum development, erosion control plantings, and stewardship development
|Pollutants of Concern:
