Aia i hea ka ipu o Lono (Sharing wealth and water in Hawaii’s future)

November 26, 2014

Aia i hea ka ipu o Lono flyer. final

This event will be held at the West Hawaii Civic Center from 5-7 PM on December 3rd.

Join a discussion with water law expert, Kapua‘ala Sproat to learn about the State Water Code, State Water Management Area designation and how this could affect the future of Hawaii.
As many are aware, the National Park Service filed a petition with the State of Hawai’i Commission on Water Resource Management requesting designation of the Keauhou Aquifer System of North Kona as a Water Management Area for groundwater.  
As you may know, the NPS filed the petition with the precautionary principle in mind and for concern of the natural and cultural resources of Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park.  Groundwater availability is critical to support the purpose, values and resources for which the Park was established, as well as coastal ecosystems, fisheries, tourism, recreation and traditional gathering throughout the area.  
There are at least three ways to participate
Testimony from interested parties can be mailed to:
Commission on Water Resource Management
P.O. Box 621
Honolulu, Hawaii 96809
OR emailed to:
with cc’s to Roy Hardy () and Paul Eyre ()
AND in person on December 10, 9 am, at the County Council chambers at the West Hawaii Civic Center.   There will be a sign-in sheet for testifiers; after Staff give Provisional Findings of Fact and the NPS and the County give comment, Chair Aila will read off the list of testifiers to come forward in the order they sign-in.
