The public is invited to a workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Hawaii Kai Towne Center to address the future of the richly historic Lucas Spring/Kalauhaihai fishpond, one of the few remaining on Oahu.

Hosted by Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Sanctuary Program, the workshop seeks to develop ideas for the restoration and potential educational, cultural and recreational uses of this state-owned fishpond. The intent is to create a community planning document for the spring.


As MFHC president Chris Cramer said,“We are seeking feedback to create a community-driven plan that will breathe new life into the pond as well as our community.”

Kalauhaihai, which feeds into Maunalua Bay from 5839 Kalanianaole Hwy. (in Niu), has been unused for more than a decade following damage to its water source.

The city reports that 1 million gallons a day at the spring area are infiltrating its sewer system, and it has scheduled repairs for later this year.

Free parking for the workshop is at the lot between Roy’s and Outback restaurants. Coffee and morning refreshments also will be provided.

For more information, call Allen Tom at 879-2818, ext. 25, or Miki Lee at 779-7235.
