Introduction to Water Quality

Water is one of our most important resources as it is essential to both human and ecosystem health. It is crucial that we learn how to best manage this precious resource for current and future generations.

This free course is offered by Maui’s leading water quality experts as part of a USDA water quality grant and will introduce you to water regulations, standards and monitoring procedures as it applies to our oceans, streams, food and drinking water on Maui.

Through this course, gain working knowledge of water regulations and standards as it relates to ambient, agricultural, aquaculture/aquaponics and drinking water and develop basic understanding and techniques relevant to water quality stakeholders.

Understand the major parameters that affect water quality and their relevance to human health, ecosystems and the food supply, learn the basic hydrologic cycle and comprehend the legal framework for managing and protecting drinking water on Maui over several classes.

The team of instructors will include Eva Blumenstein from the Department of Water Supply, John Dobovan from Kulahaven Farms, Jason Hew from Maui SWCD, and Robin Knox from Maui Ocean Center.

The next class series will be on Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m, Sept 5- 26, 2019.
