Did you get it?? MAUI NUI MARINE RESOURCE COUNCIL (MNMRC) organized a marvelous environmental workshop at the Whale Sanctuary (HIHWNMS) this morning (5/2/16), and KCA was a fortunate recipient of an invitation to hear from a panel of experts, many with advanced degrees.

Entitled Saving Our Reef: Pollution Solutions, a varied group of experts were assembled to jointly present to about 30 very interested residents and guests, focusing on South Maui near shore waters.

Facilitated by Dr Eric Brown, the meeting offered a series of presentations on related topics by Dr Brown himself, old KCA friend (now retired) County wastewater reclamation expert Steve Parabicoli, as well as Dr. Daniel Amato, Neil Rhoads and Mailea Miller-Pierce.

Kihei was the first wastewater facility in Maui. It runs 24/7/365 IMG_3325IMG_3326


After their presentations, they formed a panel supplemented with another KCA friend Darla White from DLNR, DAR to discuss and answer questions.

Would you support an annual environmental fee for Maui County to help preserve our near shore waters?

KCA was well represented with two directors, a committee- member and members for this extensive presentation and dissuasion on this topic of very strong concern.    

Most disconcerting conclusion: Cove Park water is worst by far!                                                                                             IMG_3396 IMG_3397 IMG_3398 IMG_3399 IMG_3400 IMG_3401 IMG_3402 IMG_3404 IMG_3406 IMG_3408 IMG_3409 IMG_3410 IMG_3411 IMG_3412 IMG_3413 IMG_3414 IMG_3415 IMG_3416 IMG_3417 IMG_3418 IMG_3419 IMG_3420 IMG_3422 IMG_3423 IMG_3424IMG_3328 IMG_3329 IMG_3331 IMG_3334 IMG_3336 IMG_3338 IMG_3339 IMG_3340 IMG_3341 IMG_3342 IMG_3344 IMG_3346 IMG_3347 IMG_3348
