Waimanalo Watershed Project

Nine land managers in the Waimanalo and Kahawai watersheds have joined Phase 3 of this restoration project, which will be completed in September of 2020. Through conservation planning with ORCD staff, the cooperators are installing a variety of best management practices to reduce soil erosion and runoff such as vegetative barriers, tree establishment, and streambank restoration.
