Conditions were perfect as 30 community members joined hands out on the water for this past weekend’s Paddle Out for Clean Water. This event was dedicated to the love of our oceans and was the perfect opportunity to remember why we fight for it every day. The fun continued at Hula Grill who graciously supplied participants with food and beverages, supporting our community and all of our efforts.

The paddle out was put on by the Surfrider Foundation, Sierra Club Maui, Hawaii Wildlife Fund and West Maui Preservation Association to celebrate the Maui County Council’s decision to settle the Lahaina Injection Wells Case.

But we’re not at the finish line yet.  You can help us seal the deal by sending an email to Maui County Mayor Victorino to ask him to respect the decision of the County Council and the will of the people to withdraw the County of Maui’s appeal and complete the settlement process: Send your email here.

Take action and ask Maui Mayor Victorino to listen to the County Council, hundreds of community members, students and coastal defenders by signing this action alert!
