Na Wai 'Eha, Maui's Four Great Waters Part 2
Hawai’I’s ten year drought has endangered crops in Waimanalo and Wai’anae on O’ahu, and dried up pastureland on the Big Island. On Maui, it has contributed to bringing the Island’s fresh water supply to dangerously low levels. The State Water Commission has put the Na Wai 'Eha area under its own management because of the importance of its underground aquifer and the fact that commercial, native, and environmental issues have come to a head there. I hope this series about Maui's Four Great Streams will help us all to understand a situation that affects many other parts of Hawai'i, and indeed, the world.
