plans for water quality

Projects would aim to improve
quality in the Koolaupoko region

Star-Bulletin staff

The Kailua Bay Advisory Council is soliciting a second round of request for proposals for projects to address improving water quality in the streams and coastal waters of the Koolaupoko region.

The council will conduct an informational workshop regarding the format and content of proposals from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the makai room of Kokokahi YWCA in Kaneohe.

The council was formed as part of the settlement of a 1992 lawsuit filed by several environmental groups that sought to force the city to improve water quality in Kaneohe, Kailua and Waimanalo bays. It has drawn up a master plan for the area's water quality improvement and awarded one group of project contracts earlier this year.

Proposals must be received by 4 p.m. July 19 at Kailua Bay Advisory Council, c/o Pacific Islands Land Institute, 270 Kuulei Road, Suite 201, Kailua, HI 96734.

E-mail will not be accepted, and proposals received after the deadline may not be considered. Proposals should consist of 10 copies (including one unbound one).

KBAC is requiring that proposals be submitted on its form and will give preference to projects that address the actions in KBAC Master Plan Table 4-A. Both the proposal form and links to the priority projects and measures can be found at the KBAC Web site For more information, contact Director Maile Bay at 225-9210 or 263-4883.
