Thanks to all who attended and took part in August’s Permanent BMP training event!
On August 27th, DOT Highways held a daylong training to help prepare designers to implement new best management practices (BMPs) for permanent storm water controls. Statewide standards for implementing permanent BMPs are changing, and new standards are going into effect on October 27th of this year.
The event, held at the Honolulu Country Club, featured speakers Todd Nishioka (State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation, Highways Division), Jon Lowry (EnviroServices & Training Center, LLC), Neil Weinstein (The Low Impact Development Center, Inc), Richard Price (EA Engineering, Science, and Technology) and Randall Wakumoto (City and County of Honolulu). Nearly 200 attendees gathered for this training, which was a critical step in ensuring a smooth transition to the new standards being implemented this month!
