Community input is being sought by the Commission on Water Resource Management as it updates the statewide Water Resource Protection Plan.

CWRM is interested in the public’s thoughts on water resource issues of importance.

The Water Resource Plan will attempt to establish policies and identify actions that are needed to ensure the long-term protection and sustainability of Hawai’i’s precious and limited ground and surface water resources.

A total of seven workshops will be held across the state, beginning March 3 on Oahu. Two workshops are scheduled for the Big Island. A Kona workshop will be held on March 24 at the West Hawai’i Civic Center and a workshop in Hilo will be held on March 30 at the Aupuni Center. Each workshop will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Attendees should be prepared for a short slideshow presentation, followed by small group discussions.
