2/8/24 #kihei

North Kihei cannot get a break from flooding. At least this time the flooding is clean water, not the “mud flood” stormwater variety, but as it gushes over the road on to private property, you do not want it in your home.  And it wastes a lot of potable water when a major pipe bursts.
