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.
• Install native plants along 360 ft. of stream bank
•Decreased urban run-off entering Ka'elepulu Stream
