Abstract
Since statehood in 1959, the City and County of Honolulu has experienced unprecedented social and economic growth. Concurrent with these rapid changes, the fresh water consumption has increased from 19 billion gallons in 1959 to 35 billion gallons in 1970. This is approximately an 88 percent increase in water consumption through the municipal water supply system. Based on past rates of increase in consumption, however, the limit would be reached before the end of the century. Furthermore, reviewing the past experience of regional imbalances of supply and demand and extreme seasonal peak demands, the water situation in certain.areas might reach critical limits sooner than might be expected. In view of these facts, the meaning of the changes and direction of changes of water demands should be thoroughly reviewed to provide a sounder basis for the planning of future development and for the conservation of the island's water resources.
