Fishpond Activities Resume Last June 2016, all summer program activities were modified to land-based activities after learning that the Hawaii State Department of Health shut down a nearby restaurant due to issues with its wastewater system. Since 2008, Kamehameha Schools has conducted water quality tests at MLE, and with this recent issue, additional testing was conducted. The results of our tests indicate that water quality met state and federal guidelines and KS has determined that water activities may resume at MLE.
The safety of our keiki, teachers and community is of utmost importance to us.
MLE has and will continue with standard precautionary safety measures in place.
The precautions include, but are not limited to:
• Staying out of water after heavy rain or flooding
• Staying out of the water if participants have open cuts or wounds
• Providing gloves and tabis (water shoes) for participants
• washing after pond activities
Loko Ea fishpond is a significant cultural and educational resource within the Kawailoa ahupua‘a. We strive to make it a safe learning experience, and hope that your child’s visit to this site will be valuable to their learning experience.
