Wastewater Community Working Group Meets Today
The County of Maui Department of Environmental Management (DEM) encourages the public to attend their monthly meeting set to take place today, January 7, 2010 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Maui Economic Development Board, Malcolm Training Center, Suite 5 located at 1305 Holopono Street in Kihei.
Convened by Mayor Charmaine Tavares in September of 2009, the community working groupâ€™s objective is to provide community-based recommendations to DEMâ€™s Wastewater Reclamation Division. Â The recommendations assist the County in making strides toward achieving Mayor Tavaresâ€™ goal of 100 percent recycling of Mauiâ€™s wastewater.
The Maui Wastewater Community Working Group is made up of 21 members representing a range of constituencies on the island of Maui. Monthly meetings of the working group began in October 2009 and the process is expected to continue for one year.
