DLNR chief says Round Top restoration work progressing
Advertiser StaffThe state Department of Land & Natural Resources, city, state Civil Defense and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are working together on restoration work to repair a stream bed, three bridge crossings, and banks of the Maunalaha stream damaged by heavy rains in March 2006, DLNR chairperson Laura H. Thielen said today in a news release.
In addition to DLNR's remediation project for Maunalaha stream, another project to repair damaged road sections of Round Top Drive is being completed by the city so that it can be reopened for public use, said Thielen. The road has been closed since March 2006.
Once the city has completed its repairs on Round Top Drive, anticipated by the end of this year, DLNR will return to implement the final phase of its part of the work to provide a more permanent slope restoration as well as to re-vegetate and landscape the slope, said Thielen.
