Economic Incentives for Stormwater Control

Facing stormwater runoff in city components is an issue that's getting higher and dearer. As we conceal porous surfaces with impervious structures—commercial structures, parking plenty, roads, and houses—finding areas for rainwater and snowmelt to soak in turns into more durable. Many landscapers, architects, planners, and others have proposed that using "green" localized administration practices, comparable to rain gardens and bio-swales, could functionality in addition to conventional "gray" pipes and basins at lowering the results of stormwater runoff, and achieve this in a fashion that's extra appealing within the landscape—and very likely additionally more cost-effective.

The four types of fishponds (Fig. 1) developed within the ahupua'a were: freshwater taro fishponds (loko i'a kalo) l other freshwater ponds (loko wai) l brackish water ponds (loko pu'uone) l seawater ponds (loko kuapa) l Fig. 1 Four types of Hawaiian integrated aquaculture ecosystems developed in historical times: (a) lo'i were for the paddy culture of taro (Colocasia esculenta); and loko i'a kalo were taro patches modified to include aquaculture. These upland ponds are depicted in a valley with elevation contours indicated; (b) loko wai were artificial (and modified natural) freshwater lakes excavated for aquaculture; (c) loko pu'uone were brackishwater lakes separated from the sea by a pu'uone (a spit of land reinforced by mud, silt, and refuse) and connected to the sea by a ditch that had grates to trap and hold large fish; (d) loko kuapa were ponds built along the ocean shore usually on top of a reef flat with volcanic rock and/or coral rock to form a wall (kuapa).
