Protect Our Ocean Paniolos!

At the Hawaii State Department of Transportation, Highways Division, Maui District (HDOT) we have a program that specializes in educating our keiki about the negative effects polluted stormwater can have on our rivers, oceans, and wildlife downstream. On a regular basis, our engineers and scientists visit schools and present students with a multitude of stormwater awareness educational materials meant to engage and foster a better understanding of the way stormwater can affect our natural environment. For their continued involvement in this noble cause, students who take part in this program become one of our very special Protect Our Ocean Paniolos! We thank the Protect Our Ocean Paniolos for helping to spread stormwater awareness to their families, neighbors and friends and are grateful for the opportunity we have to instill in our keiki the importance of protecting our environment on Maui!

Storm Drain Stenciling in the Community

Another way we try to spread the word about stormwater pollution prevention is by applying stencils on sidewalks that inform the community that all storm drains empty into the ocean! We involve the community in the Stormwater Management Program by asking for their assistance with the stenciling process.
