Reducing Flooding & Erosion in Maunalua
Mālama Maunalua is participating in a project with partners to develop a plan utilizing an ahupua'a concept to address flooding in several watersheds that feed into Maunalua Bay. The plan will address the serious flooding issues confronting residential, commercial, and environmental resources surrounding Maunalua Bay by reducing the volume of the stormwater runoff in priority areas through increased filtration with revegetation in natural areas and by slowing down or capturing the water from urban areas. In March, a meeting was held to address the project details with project partners and community members. Mahalo to those who were able to join!
