Hide details for Project Title & DescriptionProject Title & Description

This agreement provides full EPA funding in the amount of $700,000, of which $60,000 has been allocated for EPA in-kind assistance as requested by Hanalei Watershed Hui. The in-kind assistance is an Interagency Agreement (IAG) between EPA and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for the Hanalei River suspended sediment study. Pre-award costs are approved back to July 1, 2003, in accordance with the application dated 7/7/03.

The Hanalei Watershed Initiative (HWI) project builds on work done under the Hanalei American Heritage Rivers project. This grant will design/implement innovative best management practices (BMPs) for sediment control from traditional taro agricultural outflows and impoundments. HWI will evaluate the use of constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment (currently there is no sewer system, the entire town is on cesspools or septic systems). HWI will replace key residential cesspools along the river. The USGS will provide suspended-sediment sampling to determine if BMPs are reducing turbidity in the river. To measure environmental results, the University of Hawaii and USGS will monitor native fish populations, changes in coral and algae cover, and coral recruitment.
*** NOTE: The project/budget start date and date of award (previously 8/15/03) has been revised/corrected. ***
