Water quality of nearshore waters topic for KCA panel

Now that the elections are (expectantly) over, we hope your candidates won, and we can look forward to improved government in the upcoming years. Meanwhile, for the nongovernment sector, the all volunteer Kihei Community Association (KCA) is preparing for our final membership meeting for this year at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 15 to once again examine the quality of our nearshore waters in South Maui, an ongoing concern for many.

We welcome three astute presenters to address our membership, Robin Knox, Steve Parabicoli and Lance Collins to examine the issue and answer member’s questions.

What is causing pollution around Kalama and Cove parks, reportedly the worst condition in the state, based on state Department of Health reports? What can be done to rectify it? Is this water condition harmful to (what’s left) of the coral reef system? Are lawsuits necessary? What questions do you have?

Meeting is at the usual location, Kihei Charter Middle School, 41 E. Lipoa St. with doors open at 6 p.m. You don’t have to be a member to attend, but you should consider it. Survival of KCA is based on membership. Nonmembers can benefit from all we offer to the community, but without support, there are no benefits for anyone.

This is your last chance to contribute to KCA’s ongoing food drive for Maui Food Bank, so please be generous. Neighbors go hungry every night.
