EMI WAIVER REQUIRED FOR CERTAIN HIKES

To go on certain hikes, you need a waiver from East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI). If the hike description notes that you need a waiver then you absolutely must get one prior to the hike. (If there is no notation that the hike requires an EMI waiver, then you don’t need to worry about this.) One waiver covers all EMI hikes for the quarter of hikes listed currently. Call in your waiver request to EMI at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment for when you can sign it. Then go to EMI’s Pa’ia office at 497 Baldwin Avenue to sign the waiver. You will need to call to make sure someone will be there. Waivers CANNOT be mailed, faxed or emailed. Sierra Club Maui does not make the rules. EMI does. Please be considerate of EMI staff time and pick up waiver 5 days in advance whenever possible. THE WAIVER MUST BE BROUGHT ON THE HIKE AND SHOWN TO THE HIKE LEADER. Mahalo
