US Geological Survery, Water-Resources Investigation Report (). In general, the occurrence of ground water in Hawaii, shown in Figure , falls into three categories: (1) basal water bodies floating on and displacing salt water, (2) high-level water bodies impounded within compartments formed by impermeable dikes that intrude the lava flows, and (3) high-level water bodies perched on ash beds or soils.

  The objective of this study is to assess the impact of climate change on the water budgets of the Nuuanu area watersheds (NAW), Oahu, Hawaii, and most importantly, on the potential of water harvesting from Nuuanu Reservoir 4 (NR4).

This circular attempts to summarize existing knowledge of the effects of urbanization on hydrologic factors. It also attempts to express this knowledge in terms that the planner can use to test alternatives during the planning process. Because the available data used in this report are applied to a portion of the Brandywine Creek basin in Pennsylvania, this can be considered as a report on the. The Department of Water Supply is a semi-autonomous agency of the County of Hawai‘i that is governed by the Water Board. Founded in , its primary function is to provide domestic water service through its 23 water systems scattered throughout the Big Island. The Department continually strives to provide safe, dependable, high quality.

BHI, GRANT AGREEMENT NO. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Water Resources Monograph Series, Volume 7. This monograph has been written over the last 2 years by eight members of the AGU Urban Hydrology Committee as a means of conveying state-of-the-art practices in the expanding field of urban hydrology and stormwater management.

Urban hydrology is a science, part of land hydrology investigating the hydrological cycle, water regime and quality in urbanized territory. Urban hydrology is a link in a number of sciences dealing with the problems of ecology, environmental protection, conservation and rational use of the Earth’s water resources.

The population growth andFile Size: KB. Urban hydrology is an applied science that will have an increasing role to play in the sustainability of human societies.

Facing present growth of urban population, it is increasingly difficult to find and utilize new sources of water necessary to satisfy growing water by: The Oahu Soil and Water Conservation Districts.

The Soil and Water Conservation Districts on the island of Oahu serve all of Honolulu County. Farmers within this county are eligible to apply as program cooperators, at no cost, with benefits including conservation planning services, technical assistance, and access other farming resources.

Water resources can also be defined as systems of supply, demand, treatment, use, recycling, wastewater treatment, discharge, and reuse until water ultimately returns to the atmosphere or ocean. Hydrologic management strives to mitigate water hazards that include floods, droughts, mudslides, accelerated erosion, land subsidence, and storm surge.

before the potential benefits of urban roof water harvesting systems are realized, there is need to understand the impacts of the practice on on-site and downstream hydrology.

Honolulu, Hawai‘i Highlights We review the state of knowledge in urban rainfall, hydrology and stormwater management. There are promising new technologies for measuring and predicting rainfall and runoff.

Currently funded projects focus on storm water management, urban stream water quality and geomorphology, afforesting disturbed. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of climate change on the water budgets of the Nuuanu area watersheds (NAW), Oahu, Hawaii, and most importantly, on the potential of water.

Aly El-Kadi, a UH hydrology professor and assistant director of the university’s Water Resources Research Center, says the blasting of a boat marina can “break the caprock, which is what stops the fresh water from escaping” – creating an unintended and continuous outlet for fresh water.
