Become part of Hawaii’s conservation story

Adopt-A-Block (AAB) / Adopt-A-Stream(AAS) are simple steps residents can take to help improve the quality of streams and be Everyday Clean Water Heroes. These programs are a “hands-on” way for residents and local businesses to make a commitment to improve the quality of Oahu’s communities. Many property owners upstream may not realize that what they do on their land impacts other residents and water quality downstream. Adopters are responsible for a designated stretch of stream or street under the City’s jurisdiction.

How to Adopt:

1. Get a group of individuals that are 12 years or older to commit to participating in ongoing clean ups.

2. Use the map below to find approved City maintained streams and streets to select a work area. 

3. Send us an email with your information and we'll work with you to prepare a two year agreement for your review.
