NON-POINT SOURCE POLLUTION IN KALIHI VALLEY

Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution, unlike pollution from industrial and sewage treatment plants, comes from many diffuse sources. NPS pollution begins with rainfall moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves, it picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters, and even our underground sources of drinking water. Nonpoint source pollution has a significant effect on the Kalihi Valley watershed, extending out into our coastal coral reefs and fishing grounds.

LANDOWNER OUTREACH

KAUPA seeks to provide Kalihi Valley private landowners with outreach resources to prevent nonpoint source pollution in the form of organized stream assessments and cleanups. KAUPA can help landowners coordinate with City and State agencies to better understand their rights and responsibilities regarding the upkeep and maintenance of their watershed land.

KALIHI VALLEY STREAM COMMUNITY CLEANUPS

On the second Saturday of each month, KAUPA organizes a stream cleanup in specific areas of the Kalihi Valley watershed. Since the project began, tons of debris has been removed, including invasive species and a wide variety of non-point pollution garbage, including heavy metals, discarded furniture and abandoned vehicles. Thousands of volunteer hours have been donated to the project by area residents and schools. Environmental experts from City, State and Federal agencies have been on hand to educate community members about ways they can identify and mitigate problems in the watershed.

WATERSHED RESTORATION

An important part of KAUPA?s mission is to restore and preserve the Kalihi Valley watershed, utilizing both native Hawaiian stewardship traditions and modern scientific knowledge to best care for the valuable urban watershed. Destructive invasive species have been removed and replaced with a variety of native Hawaiian species, in an effort to perpetuate the rich cultural and environmental legacy of the Kalihi Valley watershed.
