Revision to Groundwater Recharge for the Islands of Oʻahu, Maui, and Kauaʻi
MAY 16, 2017
An error was detected that affected published groundwater-recharge estimates for Oʻahu, Maui, and Kauaʻi (see citations below). Recharge estimates for 1978-2007 rainfall and 2010 land-use conditions have been revised and are shown in tables 1-3. Recharge for other conditions and associated reports and datasets will require additional time to revise and publish.
