WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION AT
KAMILO`IKI ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Kamilo`iki Elementary School is located on Hawaii Kai Drive in East Honolulu. Storm water discharges from the campus flow via the small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) into the City Department of Planning and Permitting MS4, which outlets to Kamilo Nui Stream, a Class 2 inland water, and Kuapa Pond, a Class A marine water.
The median annual rainfall at the school is approximately 16.1 inches. The school located in a residential neighborhood with Kamilo`iki Community Park on the northwest, and residential lots to the north and south.
When it rains, water flows over campus and streets carrying the pollutants it picks up into storm drains. Storm drains are not connected to the wastewater treatment plant. Therefore, the pollutant water flows directly into our streams and ocean.
Pollutant means any hazardous waste, petroleum products, pesticides, detergents, chemical fertilizers, sewage sludge, animal waste, soil erosion and soil, accumulation of sediments, and construction waste and materials.
