The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Wednesday there was an official request made to divert the water and it was ignored for several hours by Deputy Director M. Kaleo Manuel of the Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management. (CWRM).
The paper obtained a letter from Glenn Tremble with the West Maui Land Company who dropped some damning details regarding the fire’s chronology.
The fire was contained at 9 A.M. local time but troubling weather conditions and low reservoir levels led them to make the request for stream water to store as much water as possible for fire control.
The reservoirs needed to be filled by 1 P.M. Instead, Manuel waited until 6 P.M. and the once-contained fire completely exploded.
In a recent video prior to the fire, he explained his woke views on water management. Manuel’s social justice worldview spewed out of his mouth; “water requires true conversations about equity.”
