People's Water Conference

The 8th annual statewide People's Water Conference will be held Saturday, Feb. 15 from 8am - 4:30 pm in Tenney Theater at St. Andrew's Cathedral, Queen Emma Square. The public is invited. Ample free parking.

Hawaii's most critical water con¬servation issues and solutions will be addressed from three perspec¬tives: global, national and local. Some of the questions to be raised:

  1. What role can Hawaii's citizens and government play in the conser¬vation and preservation of the earth's water resources?

  2. What can Hawaii learn from water conservation experience around the world?

  3. What does it mean to be here in the middle of the Pacific sur¬rounded by salt water but totally dependent on ourselves and the trades to maintain our fresh water resources?

  4. What obligations do Hawaii's citizens, institutions and govern¬ment have to conserve water? Are we meeting them?

Guest speakers will. be:

  1. Robert D. Shelton, SRI Inter¬national Dir. of Worldwide Envi¬ronmental Practice who will cover conservation from a global and national perspective.

  2. Jonas Minton, Chief of Water Conservation Office in the Calif. Dept. of Water Resources. He led the development of the program known as Best Management Practices for Urban Water Conservation and is now developing a similar program for agricultural water management.

There will also be two panels of Hawaii's citizens who will select what they consider the State's and each island's most critical water conservation issue and solutions. The panelists are Clinton Churchill, Guy Fujimura, Lola Mench, Luciano Minerbi, Mina Morita, James Roumasset, Glenn Teves, and Mike Tulang.

Water Conservation is a critical issue in Hawaii. It will be explored at the conference. Peter Adler and Dee Dee Letts from the Office for Dispute Adjudication will be facilitators.
