This webinar is part of a series of online activities and events about ocean sewage pollution – an enormous environmental problem that few people are talking about. During the series, we will discuss and demystify this massive ocean issue and innovative approaches being used to address it.
Ocean Sewage Series
Join reef managers and scientists in Hawai'i to learn about ways to uncover and understand what is in our water. Dr. Dan Amato from the University of Hawai'i at M?noa will present about statewide efforts identifying and mapping impacts of sewage pollution to guide a cesspool removal process. Dr. Kim Falinski from The Nature Conservancy Hawai'i will share about community-scale research to understand wastewater impacts and which areas should be prioritized for management action. We’ll also learn about the State's Cesspool Conversion Working Group efforts to incorporate state-of-the-art science into a planning and decision-making process from Michael Mezzacapo with Hawai'i Sea Grant and the University of Hawai'i Water Resources Research Center. Presentations will be followed by discussion.
