In the News: Keauhou Aquifer Water Management Area Designation 

The Keauhou Aquifer consists of a triangle that roughly runs from Makalawena around the backside of Hualalai Mountain and then down to Hokulia (see map). Buyers and sellers considering a purchase or sale of vacant land within that area that do not currently have an operating water meter should become familiar with status of the petition by the National Park Service to give the Keauhou Aquifer a state water management area designation. In a private letter from an applicant requesting clarification on the possible impact of the designation, the Manager-Chief Engineer of the Department of Water Supply has stated the following: “ … if the Keauhou aquifer is designated a ground water management area, based on our current understanding of the process, the Department of Water Supply (DWS) will postpone installation of new water services ... all new water services will require a new Water Use Permit approved by the Commission on...
