Sea-Level Rise

Sea level rising is here, and we need to act fast. As a long-time advocate for shoreline protection, I realize the need for moving some of our main roads inward and construct barriers for added protection.

We need a comprehensive county-wide assessment to identify erosion areas and funds needed over the next 10 years for sea level rising related projects.

We’re looking at eroding beaches of West Maui, where large condos are being threatened by loss of sand and sea-level rise with Hawai’i Sea Grant Coastal Hazards Expert Tara Owens and Maui County planner, Jim Buika.

The solutions are not simple. There are planning, financial and community concerns that must be addressed. We can no longer ignore the seriousness of our eroding coast lines.
