Citizen data also show harmful nutrient levels in some waters
KIHEI — Data collected from South Maui’s beaches by Hui O Ka Wai Ola show that “every single site exceeds the state standard” for allowable amounts of sediment and that some offshore waters contain potentially harmful nutrients.
“One of the biggest problems is high nutrient levels followed by turbidity,” said James Strickland, program project manager, at a gathering Wednesday night at the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary.
