(Thursday, Sept. 30, 2010) – The City’s Storm Water Quality Branch within the Department of Environmental Services (ENV) is holding “Manoa Make-A-Difference Day” this Saturday, Oct. 2.


            The event will focus on removing trash, pulling weeds and planting vegetation along Manoa Stream at three separate sites:  Kolomono Ditch; Old Waialae and Koali areas; and Woodlawn Bridge.  Volunteers can check-in at 8 a.m. at the first two sites and 10 a.m. at Woodlawn Bridge.  The work will take approximately two hours at each location.  ENV will also provide educational material on reducing trash.


            ENV – partnering with numerous businesses, schools, public officials, the state and military – will provide supplies.  Volunteers will need to sign a release form at check-in.  Participants should bring water, wear a hat, old shoes, sunscreen and dress to get dirty.


            For a release form or more information on ENV’s storm water community service activities, please visit or call Iwalani Sato, Storm Water Community Relations Specialist, at 768-3248.
