Clean Air and Respiratory Health

cleanairmaui_app1Clean Air for Keiki campaign continues to push for better air quality for Maui’s residents and visitors. Through our CleanAirMaui smartphone app the state Dept. Of Health is investigating issues of excessive smoke and dust from HC&S and Monsanto fields along with pollution from coal burned at Pu‘unene Mill where a $1.3 million fine was issued this year for air quality violations.

With support from the Environmental Protection Agency we are asking HC&S to form a task force of stakeholders to explore how we move towards greater green harvesting of HC&S fields, in particular, those fields close to the residential areas of North Kihei and Paia.
