The public is invited to participate in a series of upcoming meetings on water issues and solutions planned in various locations between March 10 and April 19, 2016.

Public input is sought as the Maui Department of Water Supply prepares the Maui Island Water Use and Developmental Plan.

The WUDP, drafted several years ago, is being redone to include all water users and water systems on Maui, and to focus more attention on ground, surface and alternative water resources.

These meetings will also provide an overview of the purpose of the WUDP and explain how the remainder of the public process will occur.  A second round of noticed meetings will be held about six weeks after each scheduled meeting.


Below is a list of upcoming meetings, all of which will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m.:

WailukuThursday, March 10Wailuku Velma McWayne Community Center
West MauiThursday, March 17Lahaina Civic Center
UpcountryMonday, March 21Eddie Tam Memorial Center
East MauiTuesday, April 19Hāna Community Center-Helene Hall

According to Hawaiʻi State law, each county is required to prepare, periodically update, and adopt by ordinance a WUDP to serve as the long-range planning blueprint for all uses of water in each county.  In addition to these public meetings, the public will also have opportunity to offer their input at all of the scheduled Maui County Council Water Resources Committee meetings.  The Department of Water Supply, Water Resources and Planning Division is hosting the meetings and can be reached at (808) 463-3110.
