Abstract: The work investigated the basal groundwater supply in southern Oahu, determine the geologic and hydrologic conditions that control the water and the amount of additional water that can be developed in the area.
The study is a part of a series of comprehensive investigations of the water resources of the island of Oahu made by the U.S. Geological Survey in its cooperative program in Hawaii.
The report describes the basal aquifer, the relation of fresh to salt water in the aquifer, and the effects of pumping on the quality of the basal supply through 1958. It gives estimates of the quantity of additional water that can be developed, methods of development, and the chemical quality of the water.
