Construction BMP Tip:
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans
What is a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)?
A SWPPP is a site-specific, written document that identifies potential sources of storm water pollution and what to do to address them. Developing a SWPPP is an integral part of the planning process prior to construction activities commencing. Learn more about what should be considered and addressed when developing this important document.
The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, Highways Division (DOT-HWYS) has continued to design and construct permanent storm water treatment best management practices to combat storm water pollution. As of this summer, there are over 100 sites actively treating storm water runoff throughout DOT-HWYS Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System, and there are many more to address. Read how these BMPs help to prevent storm water pollution.
Congratulations to the Honolulu Crew for winning this year's Annual Maintenance Baseyard Storm Water Training Quiz Competition. The training and quiz event took place in July, with heavy competition between the 13 maintenance crews.
October is Make A Difference Month and HDOT-HWYS is calling all keiki, kupuna and residents to “make a difference” by helping to prevent storm water pollution. Read these simple trash-free steps you can take to make a difference and keep our island clean for generations to come.
The new school year is in full swing and we would love to be a part of it! Our Storm Water Management Program visits a different 3rd grade classroom every month to educate our keiki about the importance of keeping Oahu’s storm drains clean and teach them how to keep our oceans clean.
If you’re interested in having us present, please let us know! To request a presentation, please email: email@example.com.
