Two sites previously monitored by Hui O Ka Wai Ola, Olowalu Mile Marker 14 and Ukumehame, are now back on the monitoring schedule starting in May 2023! A lot of restoration work has started/is being proposed at Olowalu so resuming sampling at this site may provide insight for any shifts in the water quality as a result of management action. Additionally, we are adding Ukumehame Beach Park back into our sampling schedule because we are concerned about the coastal erosion we are seeing and want to keep our eyes on the water quality in the area.
