Watershed Coordinator Michael Reyes addressed the November KCA membership meeting with a detailed slide presentation on the status of the South Maui Watershed Plan. We have reported in the past about the disastrous proposed Drainage Plan which would divert and combine streams into massive concrete culverts. Instead of allowing water from Upcountry to be absorbed by the earth and help restore vegetation on the mauka slopes, storm water would rush to the ocean, carrying pollutants and threatening the reefs and ocean life.

View the South Maui Watershed Plan presentation below for a much more realistic and healthy approach to protecting the watershed and the mauka slopes while also preventing flooding in Kihei and avoiding massive runoff into the ocean.
