Abstract
"To assist in providing the above-described information on the Kilauea ERZ hydrogeology, this proposal includes the following objectives: 1. To evaluate the overall hydrologic and hydraulic nature of the geothermal reservoir system, including : (a) Nature and distribution of the fluid flow system; is it dominated by continuum, fracture, or combination continuum-fracture flow? (b) Nature and extent of system boundaries including external and internal boundaries (c) Recharge sources and amounts (d) Reservoir parameters such as hydraulic conductivity, porosity, storativity, etc. 2. To evaluate the impact of re-injection of fluids on the geothermal reservoir and on the shallow fresh groundwater aquifer. 3. To evaluate the overall hydrologic nature and extent of the shallow fresh water aquifer and its interaction with the underlying geothermal reservoir."
