      About 50 percent of Hawaii's water supply comes from ground-water sources. Ground water, which is also used for agricultural, industrial, and domestic purposes, is the principal source of municipal water supplies in Hawaii. Consequently, protecting the quality and quantity of ground water throughout the State is essential to Hawaii's future.   Implementing the Interim Groundwater Monitoring Strategy: ‐ Sampling began in ‐ Well Selection Criteria: GW use, Land use, presence of groundwater contamination in surrounding area, and geological location. ‐ Sample Collection –12 wells –29 wells –20 wells/13 confirmation samples.

Total ground water pumped in Hawaii was about million gallons per day duringwhich is less than 3 percent. Ground water is one of Hawaii's most important natural resources.

In dispute is whether pollution from a point source can be regulated under the Clean Water Act if it first passes through groundwater. The county of Maui, Hawaii, for years has used deep injection wells to dispose of its treated wastewater.

Some of that effluent moves through groundwater and into the Pacific Ocean. The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions. The Hawai‘i State Water Well project digitized all of the water well files at the DLNR, Commission of Water Resource Management (CWRM).

Though public information, the files existed previously in print/paper format, so prior access to the information required going in person to the CWRM office. The geology reports all showed that over 90% of Hawaii’s water supply is from groundwater but its origin still puzzled me.

Then I was informed about the density differences between the abundant rainwater and native intruded sea water below the islands. Infiltrated rainwater has a total mineral content of about ppm (parts per million. clean drinking water, clean groundwater, water for house-hold/private sector, and clean rivers.

Gender affected how people viewed water issues. For instance, for 9 of the 11 questions, females were more likely than males to rate issues as very or extremely important. Everyone, male or. Solutions include: engineering any grading that changes the terrain, maintaining adequate forest cover and shrubs to retain soil, creating waterways that channel storm water into basins that slow down the force of the water’s movement, building in non-flood zones, using composting toilets or adequate sewage treatment so it does not empty out to sea, growing foods and landscaping organically.

wells with Keopu being the “drain” for the ground-water flow system. The ground-water flux south of Keopu is to the north, and north of Keopu, the ground-water flow is to the south. Some high-level wells do exhibit quasi-stable water levels, and show little variation over time.

Use of long-term water level transducers in these wells. groundwater as its main source of water for drinking and irrigation. Over million gallons per day of groundwater is used in the state to fulfill domestic, commercial, and industrial needs.

Groundwater provides about percent of Hawaii’s domestic water and about 50 percent of freshwater used in Hawaii. Hawaii’s groundwater resources.

About 50 percent of Hawaii’s water supply comes from ground water sources. Ground water, which is also used for agricultural, industrial, and domestic purposes, is the principal source of municipal water supplies in Hawaii. Consequently, protecting the quality and quantity of ground water throughout the State is essential to Hawaii’s future well being.

The Commission [ ]. perched ground water and the ash, soil, and conglomerate beds upon which it is held was first clearly understood in through the work ofW. Clark (Stearns and Clark,U. Geol. Survey, Water-Supply Paper ) who spent many years thereafter planning.

Groundwater Collection By renowned geologists, this collection’s reports, datasets, and maps contain invaluable information about the water resources in eight major Hawaiian islands.

Groundwater Contamination Viewer (Maps) The Groundwater Contamination Maps for the State of Hawaii were first published in August of Eight subsequent versions of the maps were published between and The previous editions of the maps were long in coming because of the tedious nature of developing the maps.

Ground-Water Availability from the Hawi Aquifer in the Kohala Area, Hawaii Water-Resources Investigations Report By: Mark R. Underwood, William Meyer, and William R.

Souza. Groundwater in the Hawaiian islands often becomes trapped in massive vertical compartments formed by volcanic dikes. During the volcanic eruptions that created the Hawaiian Islands, molten rock beneath the surface flowed up from the center of the volcanoes, then spewed out as lava that oozed its way down slopes toward the ocean.

GROUNDWATER GAUGING The purpose of groundwater gauging is to construct a groundwater table map or a potentiometric surface map for the site under investigation. The data are used to calculate the hydraulic gradient(s) and the horizontal groundwater.

Historically, about a third of that rain soaks in and recharges the groundwater. It takes between one year and 25 to reach the aquifer. Some rain is absorbed by plants and then evaporates: about a third. An aquifer is not a big hole in the island, says Board of Water Supply employee Arthur Aiu, “It’s saturated rock.” Our aquifers consist.
