This photo was sent in by concerned citizen. The photo was taken in Kihei from the highway looking makai, west of E. Waipuilani Rd. The question they have asked is Who & Why is someone removing all the vegetation from this efemeral stream as we enter rainy season? Won't this allow all the the freshly exposed dirt to pour directly into the ocean unstopped? We would all love to hear the reasoning from anyone in the know.
