Every quarter, Mr. Henry and Mr. Armando clean the storm drain that borders the school and the City and County Park. See our "before" and "after."


The Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS-4) program is part of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's} effort to preserve, protect, and improve the Nation's water resources from polluted storm water runoff. 

Department of Education (DOE) schools on Oahu will incrementally comply with this requirement by initiating programs such as education, monitoring, enforcement, clean up, and annual reporting. 

This program affects everyone who uses a DOE campus on Oahu, including staff, students, and all community users.

Let's make sure that we have clean water for our future.
