The Popoi'a Street Storm Water Retrofit project got underway on Tuesday September 4th, 2012.
This project is meant to capture pollution associated with storm water runoff and demonstrate how new building techniques and technologies can be used to protect stream and ocean health.
The scope of the project replaces about 6,000 square feet of dirt with inter-locking pervious pavers to allow storm water infiltration. Additionally, native vegetation and small rain gardens will be installed to help filter additional polluted run-off. The finished area will have three interpretive signs with original art work created by Lanikai Elementary Public Charter School students.
