| Two of Pioneer Mill Company’s sugarcane fields were in
need of proper terrace systems. Due to the fields complex slopes
and deterioration of the terrace systems over the years, sediment
had been entering the drainage and into the ocean at Hahakea.
||To reduce the flow of sediment into the ocean by constructing
new terrace systems within two fields that contributes most of
the sediment pollution.
||Construction of more than 29,000 feet of terraces across the
slope of agricultural fields.
