Anyone who recreates in our south shore waters over the years will verify the reef system is continuously deteriorating. The longer you’ve observed, the worse the situation has declined. There are myriad reasons for the deterioration, running the gambit from pesticide & insecticide run off, sewage dumping and leakage, injection wells, unrestricted street and gulch flushing in rain storms, overfishing and collection, poor construction practices, littering, and many other complex situations.

The KCA monthly meeting will explore some of these causes and some possible ways to rectify them. The DIRE Coalition, represented by Irene Bowie and S W Maui Watershed Advisory Group’s Robin Knox, as well as Pump Don’t Dump’s & KCA VP Mike Moran, will offer information to the community on some these concerns, and be available to answer your questions.

All are welcome on Tuesday, June 15th at 6:00 PM to talk story with neighbors before the presentation begins promptly at 6:30 PM. Food donations for the Maui Food Bank accepted. Get in the habit of attending KCA Community meetings on the third Tuesday of each month to make South Maui a better place for all. Mahalo.
