Biosolids & Water Quality Workshop

The Hawaii Water Environment Association hosted an inaugural worshop on May 28, 2015 at the Manoa Grand Ballroom at the Japanese Cultural Center. This workshop featured two important topics to Hawaii’s future in becoming a sustainable environment: Biosolids and Stormwater.

With respect to Biosolids, this technology is not at the forefront of waste management and we hope that this conference will shed some light as to what biosolids can offer. There will be speakers presenting on Oahu’s current masterplan for implementing biosolids and various biosolids technologies. There will also be speakers from the mainland to share their experiences and offer a different perspective on biosolids.

Stormwater principles are frequently changing and the speakers at this workshop will discuss the latest trends and technologies. Along with changing principles, the regulatory requirements are also constantly being modified and so a forum of city and state agencies have been assembled to discuss their Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Programs and be available for questions the audience may have.
