WASHINGTON, DC – (RealEstateRama) — Public input is requested on water issues and solutions to assist in preparing the Maui Island Water Use and Development Plan (WUDP). Public meetings are scheduled throughout Maui. 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 our 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 meeting.
All meetings will be held from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Wailuku: Thursday, March 10
– Wailuku Velma McWayne Community Center
West Maui: Thursday, March 17
– Lahaina Civic Center
Upcountry: Monday, March 21
– Eddie Tam Memorial Center
East Maui: Tuesday, April 19

According to Hawaii 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 463-3110.
