Do you have exposed soils on your construction project that need to be protected from water and wind erosion? During construction, ground disturbing activities often result in areas of exposed soils susceptible to erosion.
Mulching is a best management practice (BMP) that can provide either temporary or permanent stabilization to prevent erosion and reduce runoff. Applying mulch using green material, hydraulic matrices or hydraulic mulches provides temporary ground cover until permanent vegetation is established.
It’s rainy season in Hawaii, and while it has its positive affects, it also leads to pollutants being washed into our storm drains and into the ocean. Here are a few reminders on how you can help to keep our storm drains free of these harmful items.
Mark your calendars for these upcoming community events!
Friday-Sunday, January 26-28: Our Storm Water Hawaii team will be at the BIA Home & Remodeling Expo at the Blaisdell Center. We'll be sharing tips to protect our water and giving away some great prizes with our prize wheel.
