Hawaii County Storm Drainage Standards Over 38 Years Old and Based on Honolulu County Model

I was just looking at the counties website and something that stood out to me after these recent storms, is that the Storm Drainage Standards for Hawaii County are more then 38 years old!

How many times does Bayfront need to get flooded out before the “standards” get changed?

The document is dated October of 1970! I know we are on Hawaii time here folks, but come on now!

The thing that stands out the most is this:

…The Storm Drainage Standards of the City and County of Honolulu dated March 1969, has been used as the basis for these standards…

So not only are the standards outdated… they aren’t even based on the Island of Hawaii!
