      Take action for Maui’s beautiful coral reefs and beaches

      We all want clean ocean water at our favorite Maui beaches.

      That’s why Maui Nui Marine Resource Council is proud of our Hui O Ka Wai Ola ocean water quality monitoring program. This volunteer-based program  tests water quality at 39 beach and shoreline locations on Maui every three weeks, monitoring for sediment, pollutants like nitrogen and phosphorous, changes in ocean temperatures and more.

      The data we collect is provided to the Hawaii Department of Health and shared publicly online at HuiOKaWaiOla.com. With data, we can tackle the causes of water pollution by working with upslope landowners, construction sites and local government.

      While our program is volunteer-based, each site requires an expenditure of $4,000 to cover testing materials and shipping of water samples to a testing lab.

      Please support this work by adopting one of our ocean water quality testing sites — at a beach that you love, at a beach that’s important to your business or community, or a beach that’s cherished by your family.

      We need your support to continue this program beyond January 1, 2019. Here’s how you can help:

      1. Pick your favorite beach from the list below.
      2. Choose the donation level that’s right for you to support water quality testing at your beach.
      3. Invite others to donate! We welcome donations from individuals, families, civic groups, homeowner associations and businesses.
      4. Use social media to encourage your friends and family to donate. Create a fundraiser on Facebook to raise money for water quality testing at the beach you selected.
      5. Donations of $1,000 or more will be invited to include your logo or name on our Sponsors page and will have your logo or name included in our Reef in Brief newsletter and displayed at our Monthly Meetings.
