A presentation on the process for developing the Maui Island Water Use and Development Plan will be given from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Hawaii Maui College's Pilana Multipurpose Room.
Pam Pogue, planning program manager for the county Department of Water Supply, will give the presentation, according to an announcement from the Maui Tomorrow Foundation.
Pogue will describe the process of completing the plan, explain what it is, how the process will work and how communities can get involved.
"We want to make sure the public is aware that this final update of the Water Use Plan will be different from the earlier draft reviewed by the Maui Board of Water Supply and Maui County Council in 2010," said Michael Howden, a former water board chairman. "It will cover the entire island of Maui, both public and private water systems, and be integrated with the Maui Island Plan to reflect projected growth rates and future water demand."
The event is being sponsored by the county water department, Maui Tomorrow and the college's Sustainable Living Institute of Maui.
"It's important for members of our community to know how the Water Use and Development Plan process is going to work, and we hope folks will attend this presentation to stay informed," said Irene Bowie, Maui Tomorrow executive director. "Good water planning is they key to a sustainable future and food and energy self-sufficiency for Maui island."
