LAHAINA – The State Commission on Water Resource Management will hold its November meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 10 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial Hall at 198 Fleming Road in Lahaina.
During the meeting, the commission staff will present its findings and proposal on instream flow standards for Kahoma and Kanaha streams in the surface water hydrologic unit of Kahoma.
Public testimony will be heard at the meeting; written testimony may be e-mailed to the commission at email@example.com three working days prior for distribution at the meeting.
