Converting Waste to Assets: R-1 Wastewater
Whether solid waste or liquid waste, the challenge is the same-- can we turn this liability into a sustainable asset?  Our County's Director of the Department of Environmental Management, William Kucharsky, focused on the current efforts to reuse wastewater, but also touched on the recent sewage spill in Hilo Bay and composting.
Fight the Bite: Mosquito-Borne Diseases
Those pesky mosquitos can make you more than itchy.  Of the six species of mosquitoes in Hawaii, two species are of primary concern that are active day and night.  These species have been responsible and are capable of spreading Dengue, Zika, Chikunguya and other serious diseases.  Jason Dela Cruz of the Department of Health explained the risks and prevention measures.
