Flood Clean Up Kudos; Next Clean Up on 1/16/12

Please see below a thank you letter which was sent to Mayor Peter Carlisle, City Department of Facilities Maintenance, City Department of Environmental Services, City Department of Planning and Permitting, HI State Civil Defense, HI National Guard Youth Challenge Academy, Department of Defense, HI Department of Land and Natural Resources, US Army Corps of Engineers, Sen. Daniel Inouye, Rep. Mazie Hirono, Paradise Lua/Porky’s Trucking (George Grace, III), and Dr. Fred Dodge in late December 2011.


Mahalo for your assistance with the Paakea area clean up on November 19 and the Puuhulu stream clean up on December 10.  We truly appreciate your help and support.  Your participation was vital to making both clean ups a success with over 300 volunteers, resulting in the removal of approximately 16 tons of trash, 5 tons of green waste, one 40-foot container of construction waste, and 900 tires.  Both clean ups would not have been possible without the combined efforts of federal, state, and city government agencies and officials, businesses, organizations, and community members.

These two clean ups are a great first step following the Town Hall Meeting that discussed flooding issues along the Waianae Coast on September 29.  We look forward to continuing our efforts as part of the Waianae Coast Flood Mitigation Working Group.  The next Stream Clean Up is scheduled for January 16, 2012 and we welcome your participation and support again.  Thank you again for all your efforts in working together to serve the Waianae Coast.
