The state Board of Land and Natural Resources on Friday is to take up the issue of coral reef damage at the Keawakapu artificial reef off Maui.

The Division of Aquatic Resources staff is to report on an assessment of the damage that occurred last Dec. 2.

The state initially reported that it appeared about 50 concrete slabs hit the reef.

But federal report says 125 slabs accidentally landed on live coral habitat during a state project to enhance the artificial reef.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the rest of the 1,400 modules weighing 2,800 pounds each landed on sand.

Friday's meeting is to be held at Maui County's Department of Planning
