The North Shore Regional Wastewater Alternatives Plan (NSRWWAP) was intended to update and revise previous wastewater planning efforts for this region of Oahu. As a departure from the typical planning approach this current planning effort attempted to first understand the values of the North Shore community, and then develop technical wastewater treatment alternatives that are consistent with these values. As a result of this process a decentralized system of treatment and disposal is proposed. Decentralized systems lend themselves to rural, spread-out, communities particularly where the geography makes it difficult to collect and treat at centralized facilities.
