A brief description of the institution's stormwater management initiatives:

HPU's Hawai`i Loa Campus is a 135 acre area in Kaneohe, HI where the university owns all of the land and the buildings. On this campus, storm water runoff management has always been a part of the design. A storm water drainage system was designed into the entire campus to reduce storm water runoff from ongoing campus operations and rain. Storm water runoff is also accounted for in new development projects by using silt fences during construction to contain water runoff, and immediately planting new grass after an excavation. HPU's downtown campus is located in the heart of downtown Honolulu, HI. On this campus, HPU does not own any buildings, but rather leases various floors and offices from a number of different buildings. This area is covered by the City and County of Honolulu's Storm Water Management Program Plan. This plan is detailed in a 160 page document prepared by the City and County of Honolulu's Department of Environmental Services, and covers storm water runoff strategies as well as management plans for new construction and post-construction strategies to obtain storm water runoff. The document can be found at: http://www.cleanwaterhonolulu.com/storm/
