According to Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), the results from preliminary air sampling and air monitoring conducted in Lāhainā and Upcountry Maui do not show evidence of poor air quality or any hazardous levels of contaminants in the air at the time the samples were collected.

The preliminary data indicate that air quality around wildfire impacted areas in Lāhainā and Upcountry Maui are free of hazardous levels of contaminants, DOH officials said.

It is important to note that the data available have not yet been validated. This means the currently available data is preliminary and hasn’t been double checked by the lab or quality tested by an independent third party. The final results may be different, and data is expected to be added. That validation process is ongoing, and the validated results will be shared as soon as they are available. The validation process may take several weeks.
