The Maui County Council Infrastructure and Environmental Management Committee takes up discussion today on the Hāna Bay Septic System.

This comes following a public meeting held last week in East Maui.

Residents have complained of a foul smell from exhaust and smoky looking vapor coming from the area during renovation.

The county has since filed a request for an Special Management Area permit to install a leach field at the location.


Written testimony today included a request to fund a domestic water system master plan and a wastewater system master plan for the Hāna Region.
