Background/
Overview:
A key element to successful abatement of NSP is a strong extension program that educates the public on appropriate best management practices at local levels to reduce these sources. There is usually sufficient background information available to implement measures to control NPS but a major gap lies between what should be done and the public’s perception of what needs to be done. The public’s awareness of the facts and the ability of resource managers to change behavior is often a weak link. Appropriately designed extension efforts can assist in educating the public of the facts and, in doing so, changing inappropriate behaviors.
Objectives/Goals: To provide personnel and technical assistance for implementation of best management practices to prevent, control, and reduce discharges of NSP into Hawaii’s waters.
Methods Employed: Create 3 extension agent positions to be placed in Hilo, island of Hawaii, island of Maui, and Pearl Harbor, island of Oahu
