Maui Resource Program

The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture has given its approval to a broadside program designed to conserve and develop Maui County's natural resources.

According to an announcement from U.S. Sen. Hiram Fong of Hawaii, the approval opens the door to some $1.1 million in federal assistance for Maui County projects.

The program, approved by the Agriculture Dept., is known as the Tri-Isle Resource Conservation and Development Project. The project is sponsored by the County of Maui and by the five Soil and Water Conservation Districts within the county.

Arthur Fernandez, chairman of the project's steering committee, said federal funds now will be available to carry out work in flood prevention, agriculture irrigation, erosion control and water recreation facilities.

The entire project involves an extensive list of jobs that are eligible for federal assistance as they are developed. As an example, Fernandez said federal money may be available for installation of water irrigation lines running off the main transmission pipeline in the Kula area.
