Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie has released $2 million in general obligation bond funds to alleviate flooding in a West Oahu community.

State Rep. Jo Jordan says flooding in Waianae has become a serious issue for area residents. An area known as Lualualei Flats is prone to flooding, primarily because of poor drainage and illegal dumping in streams and ditches.

The project includes drainage improvements along Puhawai Road.

Jordan is organizing a community volunteer cleanup of Puuhulu Stream on Monday.
