Debris Containment

Last updated November 16, 2023

As we move forward in Phase 2, the County's primary focus remains the removal of ash and debris from affected properties. Alongside this essential cleanup effort for health and safety reasons, there's an additional aspect that is equally important – creating a safe repository for any items or remains that exist in the ash. To meet this challenge, the County has proposed a Debris Containment solution that designates Olowalu in West Maui as a specific site for this purpose. This initiative is being designed to allow Lahaina families to honor their past while streamlining the cleanup process.

More information on this proposal to come.
