I’M SWIMMING IN WHAT?!? Final 2016 Meeting * Vital Concern: Near-Shore Water Quality

You see it on everything KCA;  business cards, website banner, Facebook, stationary, as it is who we are and what we do, e malama pono” …dedicated to protecting, sustaining and enhancing our ‘aina, kai and ‘ohana.

  • Historically some segment of this has been a frequent topic for membership meetings, and the kai aspect likely the most prevalent, so as 2016 sees a resurgence of community concern, especially south central Kihei area, it is a fitting topic to educate and update our membership and the community.
  • Thus on November 15, 2016 at the usual location and time, Kihei Charter Middle School, 41 E. Lipoa at 6:30 PM, we welcome a very informed trio to address our general membership; environmental scientist and water quality expert Robin Knox; biologist and waste-water (or better resource water) expert Steve Parabicoli; and attorney Lance Collins.
  • Devastating scientific reports, based on sampling conducted by the State Department of Health, Clean Water Branch indicate the water quality near Kalama Park and Cove Park is the worst in the state! What can be done? What should be done? One thing for sure; it should not be hidden from the public. So come listen, learn and ask questions. It is about the health of all ocean users. Its about protecting the coral reef system. If nothing else, it is about our  visitor industry, the economic lifeblood of the island.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Membership is not required, but encourage. No charge to attend, but the continuous drive for all those generous Maui Food Bank donations of nourishing non perishable food to feed our community in need are encouraged. Keiki and kupuna go hungry daily on Maui
  • Doors open at 6:00 PM for snacks & talk story
