‘(A lot of) Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head’ – Hal David & Burt Bacharach

South Maui catches our share again with the usual results
#kihei 3/2/17 – The sky opened yesterday afternoon & continued last night; while our area may get less accumulation than other island regions, the usual spots are affected.

Director David Goode’s Public Works team was out before midnight on South Kihei Road at Kaonoulu (and other affected areas), as the Kulanihakoi gulch brought forth the usual brown debris-filled liquid.

    Hi, is this gulch ever going to be addressed as to how to better control the water? The sediment in the gulch has increased at an alarming level and those of us who live on the gulch are getting more and more worried that we will be flooded some day. Why does all the water come down this gulch? At the last flooding I drove by neighboring gulches and they were empty. I hope there is some plan in the works to remedy this.
    Thank you for all your work.

  2. Mahalo, Virginia. I guess depends to whom you refer about addressing it? Our all volunteer non profit has been addressing it for years, & as you see twice more after this post. We are far from experts but understand this is one of the major gulches, so can carry a lot of water. Which gulch brings most water to Kihei depends on where it is raining hardest up top. We always suggest concerned residents express their concern to the government officials who have have the power. If you need guidance how to do this, we are very willing to help.
    Happy St Patrick’s Day. Let’s hope officials are counting on good luck.
    Aloha
