DOT Display Attracts Attention at Sea Life Park

On Saturday, November 8th, more than 500 people stopped by the Department of Transportation, Highways Division, Oahu District’s booth at Sea Life Park to learn about the importance of preventing pollution from entering Oahu’s storm drain system. In addition to interacting with a storm water model, many families had the opportunity to win prizes by spinning a prize wheel, which featured storm water related questions.

Sea Life Park commemorated its 50th anniversary by lowering its admission fee to just $2.64. As a result, thousands of people streamed into the Waimanalo park with a crowd numbering ten times that of a normal day.

The DOT partnered with Sea Life Park to create a colorful display that was located within the touch pool area and adjacent to the aviary. The informative display will educate guests about why it is important to keep our storm water drains clear of everything but rain water, as well as offer tips on how pollution can be prevented from entering into the storm drain system.
