|Salt Lake has been the source of numerous odor complaints due
to the lack of circulation in the principal water body. Runoff
from Salt Lake, a privately owned water body, discharges through
the City’s storm drain system into Moanalua Stream and eventually
into Keehi Lagoon, which is on the list of Prioritized list of
Category I Watersheds.
||To reduce silt build up and odor in Salt Lake through monitoring,
educational outreach programs, and by limiting the use of drain
inserts, filtration devices, and chemical and biological treatments.
||• Collect and analyze water samples from the waterway surrounding
the golf course.
• Install 6 drain inlet inserts, filtration devices, chemical and biological
treatment, as well as public outreach to minimize pollutants into the lake.
