HACD has been an active partner of the Polluted Runoff Control (PRC) Program since the late 1980’s. Funds have been provided to the HACD to assist the Department of Health in non point source program development and implementation.
Objectives/Goals: To continue to assist the PRC Program in educating and encouraging the prevention of nonpoint source pollution by planning and coordinating water quality workshops. Specifically, this project sought to assist in developing a non point source compliance program, including both regulatory and non-regulatory mechanisms, educating federal, state, and county government agencies about non point source pollution and developing partnerships with other agencies and organizations to address non point source pollution.
Methods Employed: • Secured state funding to hire staff
• Provided information and education to the state legislature
• Organized and facilitated the Hawaii Water Quality Conference held on May 14-16, 2002 and was entitled, “The Changing World of Water Quality in Hawaii.” More than 160 people attended the conference representing federal, state, and county government agencies, educational institutions, community groups, and private organizations. The project was also successful in establishing technical assistance programs on every island by actively securing funding from the Board of Water Supply, the Environmental Response Revolving Fund, and each County.
