Commission Approves Plan to Manage Water Shortages in Pearl Harbor Aquifer

posted in: September 2020, Water | 0

On August 14, the state Commission on Water Resource Management approved a Pearl Harbor Water Shortage Plan, which dictates how the commission will determine when there is a water shortage and the actions various types of permitted users of the aquifer area must take to help protect the resource.

In addition to drought declarations by the USDA and the Honolulu Board of Water Supply, declines in water levels in the state’s six deep monitoring wells on the island may also trigger whether the commission declares a shortage watch, alert, or warning.
