Working with residents and businesses along the road, Hui o Ko'olaupoko was able to develop a design to retrofit the 12,000 square foot parking lot to capture/infiltrate storm water runoff and reduce the amount of pollution reaching the stream. Brick pavers were installed to help water infiltrate and 360 feet of stream bank was improved with native vegetation which also captures water and traps floating/blowing trash. Interpretative signage for the project was designed by the 2010 Lanikai Elementary Public Charter School First Grade Class.
Many thanks to our project partners and funders from the Environmental Protection Agency, Hawaii Department of Health, City & County of Honolulu, The Hawaii Tourism Authority, Buzz's Original Steak House, LaniKailua Outdoor Circle, Long House Development, Hughes & Hughes Landscape Architecture, Futura Stone, and residents along Popoi'a Street.
