With the voyages of Hokule‘a and Hikianalia still fresh in peoples’ minds, the 22nd Annual Hawaii Conservation Conference honored Hawaii’s explorers with the theme of “Navigating Change in the Pacific Islands.” From Tuesday, July 15th through Thursday, July 17th at the Hawaii Convention Center, our Storm Water Management team was pleased to have a booth at the conference and communicate with attendees about the importance storm water management.
With representatives from a wide range of environmental organizations in attendance, we were able to discuss ideas regarding drainage issues and marine pollution with others who are determined to maintain the beauty and purity of Hawaii’s waters. It was a great opportunity for our SWMP team to share our experiences with others in related fields. We also met with many college professors and students who were interested in discussing local issues surrounding storm water pollution and prevention.
Over 300 people visited our booth to learn more about storm water pollution and the proper ways of managing what enters our storm drains. A big mahalo to everyone who visited our booth and helped to make the 22nd Annual Hawaii Conservation Conference a success!
