|Abstract:||In response to the need to identify and describe aquifers for each island of the state of Hawaii to serve
as a framework for groundwater protection strategy, a program has been initiated to classify and assign
codes to the principal aquifers of the State. This fourth report provides Aquifer Codes and Status Codes
for the island of Molokai. The Aquifer Codes incorporate locational and descriptive indices, while the
Status codes indicate the developability, utility, quality, uniqueness, and vulnerability to contamination
of the groundwater resources. The codes were generated for Hawaiian conditions of groundwater
occurrence and behavior in preference to using the DRASTIC approach suggested by the U.S. EPA. Each
Aquifer Type within an Aquifer System is assigned an Aquifer Code consisting of an eight-digit number.
An Aquifer Code is unique and non-repeatable in the State. Accompanying the Aquifer Code is a Status
Code of five digits. A Status code is specific to an Aquifer Code. The Molokai classification includes 4
Aquifer Sectors, 16 Aquifer Systems, and 40 Aquifer Types.
