Maui water release on Monday

MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Despite a pending lawsuit, water will once again be flowing through several Maui streams next week. Hawaiian Sugar Company will divert some of the water it's been using for more than a century.

Some community groups have been fighting for more water for small farmers and environmental reasons.

It'll be diverted from the Waihee River and south Waiehu streams.
