Maui National Park and Hawai’i County officials are expected to announce the next major update to the state’s waterfall system at a news conference Tuesday.
Officials from the National Park Service and the Maui County Water Bureau are expected in the Kilauea Falls at 10 a.m.
The meeting is being held to inform the public about the upcoming changes.
The waterfall system is one of three that are part of the state parks system.
The other two are the Whiting Falls and Big Tree Falls.
The Whiting falls has been closed to the public for over a year, and Big Trees Falls is currently closed to visitors and the public due to erosion issues.
Maui Falls, which is located on the North Shore of Maui, is one part of a cascade of other waterfalls in the state park system.
These waterfalls are popular with tourists.
The waterfall in Big Tree, which sits in the center of the park, is among the highest in the area, according to National Park Services.
The Whiting and Big tree falls have been closed since June 2019, and the Big Tree and Whiting were closed for more than a year due to damage caused by an eruption in 2017.
