Popoia Storm Water Retrofit

HOK can work with your group (of 5 or more) to arrange a private weekday service trip or educational visit to any of the above sites or the following locations: Kaha Native Plant Garden,  Popoia Street Stormwater Retrofit, & Windward Community College Rain Garden.

Volunteers are welcome to help maintain this garden as their own schedule allows after completing a 2 hour in field training with an HOK representative.

This Low-Impact Development project retrofitted 12,000 sq. ft. of an existing parking lot owned by City and County of Honolulu Parks Department adjacent to Ka'elepulu Stream in Kailua to improve the quality of storm water runoff. Pervious pavers were installed in the parking area to capture storm water runoff and reduce the amount of pollution reaching the stream. Additionally, the project improved 360 feet of riparian habitat through the installation of native plants and rain gardens to capture additional storm water and allow for infiltration before polluted water has a chance to enter Ka'elepulu Stream.

Volunteer to help maintain this project in urban Kailua while learning about native Hawaiian plants and local watershed issues. Visitors will help to maintain these native gardens in urban Kailua and Kaneohe while learning about native Hawaiian plants and local watershed issues.  We can also tailor the event to fit your curriculum or desired experiences.  

Volunteers are asked to wear shoes and work clothes that they don't mind getting  dirty, bring a water bottle, snack and work gloves if you would like them.  All tools will be provided.
