THE EAST MAUI WATERSHED PARTNERSHIP

Concerns for these issues was shown when seven land owners on Maui formed the East Maui Watershed Partnership (EMWP) to coordinate the resource management of 4,047 hectares (100,000 acres) of watershed ecosystem.

Their primary concern was to coordinate efforts to manage and monitor the watershed for both ecosystem health and continued water output, since Hawai‘i relies on its forests for nearly all of its freshwater.
