The County of Maui website has a new page devoted to storm water, including the County’s stormwater management plan for the Kahului-Pāʻia Urbanized Area.  There’s also a form to report environmental concerns and strategies to help protect storm water and receiving waters from pollutants.

The Storm Water Management Program webpage provides information on the County’s Storm Water Management Program activities, as well as information on how community members can protect storm water and minimize pollutants in surface water resources. County officials say the webpage provides an additional reporting mechanism for environmental concerns related to storm water or the County’s storm drainage system.

The goal, county officials say, is to work with community individuals, businesses, large landowners, and State and Federal agencies to foster joint responsibility and positive action to protect Maui’s precious surface water resources.

“The County is committed to protecting water quality and to increasing public awareness about how their actions can impact storm water quality,” said Department of Public Works Director David Goode. “Many thanks to our staff across all departments for their contribution to the County’s Storm Water Program.”
