According to DWS, rainfall will recharge the aquifers of Laos, Waihee and Kahului on Maui. However, it takes time to replenish the groundwater storage capacity, and if the amount of rainfall is small, the amount of recharge will be small.

“The Central Maui system relies primarily on groundwater and is not as vulnerable to drought as the surface water sources that serve upcountry systems,” said Jeff Pearson, director of DWS. “We want to ensure that these groundwater sources remain healthy over the long term to meet the needs of the community. Reducing water usage as much as possible protects resources. Helps to do. “
