From choosing the right partners to taking extra steps to ensure that most materials can be recycled, WEFTEC seeks to have the least effect on the environment as possible.
Coastal managers commonly predict and plan for sea-level-related beach movement using the Bruun Rule, a linear formula that predicts beach recession based on the shape and slope of the upper shoreline. Bruun Rule calculations predict 1 m (3 ft) of global mean sea-level rise by 2100, causing beachfronts around the world to recede inland as much as 100 m (328 ft). Such an extreme loss would destroy nearly half of the world’s existing beaches.
HWEA held its first in-person quarterly luncheon since the beginning of the pandemic at the usual location in Dave & Buster's Kakaako on April 26. It was a joyous occasion to see friends and colleagues in person again after more than two years, share a delicious meal, and catch up about recent developments. The highlights of the event, beside than the traditional raffle, were the presentations and the subsequent conversation about Hawaii's cesspool issue.
