HTA funding was acquired for Kihei Boat ramp improvement activities. The funding (with local match) was used to purchase and install benches and interpretive signage, and to improve trail access and restoration and reestablishment of native Hawaiian coastal plants which protect the boat landing periphery and dunes. The harbor had accumulated excessive sediment (sand) over many years from beach erosion and runoff which was threatening boat access. The second phase of the project utilized additional funding to dredge the sand and make it available for beach enrichment at Kamaole Park.
