Our monthly meeting will include a presentation by Tapani Vuori, Maui Ocean Center General Manager; Aviad Cahana, Maui Ocean Center Environmental Director, and Robin S. Knox, Maui Ocean Center Regulatory Consultant (Water Quality Consulting, Inc.) on quantitative water quality studies that examine the relationship between Maui Ocean Center’s flow-through sea water system and Ma’alaea Harbor water quality. Tapani Vouri reports, “we will demonstrate that Maui Ocean Center discharge improves Ma’alaea Harbor water quality by lowering pollutant concentrations, lowering turbidity and providing water flow.” The findings will also cover the different contributors to the nutrient loading at Ma’alaea Harbor.
If it’s convenient, please bring a beverage or snack for our refreshment table.
