EVENTS:      U.S. EPA representatives will hold an afternoon

            draft Underground Injection Control (UIC) permit to  
            Maui County for existing and new injection wells at  
            the Lahaina Wastewater Reclamation Facility.  This  
            will be followed by an evening public hearing to    
            solicit verbal and written comments from the public  
            on the proposed permit.  


DATE:        Tuesday, January 31, 1995

WHERE/WHEN:  Public Information Workshop:  2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

NOTE:        The proposed permit's limit on underground          
            injection well discharges would be equal to the      
            the Lahaina Wastewater Reclamation Facility's        
            current treatment capacity of 6.7 million gallons
            per day.  The new injection wells, which are        
            required by state regulations, would be for          
            emergency use only.  Copies of the draft permit are  
            available at the public libraries in Lahaina and    
            Kahului.  U.S. EPA will be accepting written        
            comments on the proposal until February 15,
