Hawaii Water Plan:
State Water Projects Plan
The Engineering Division of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) has accountability for State projects and is responsible for the preparation of the State Water Projects Plan (SWPP) in conjunction with the Commission and other State agencies. The purpose of the SWPP is to provide a framework for planning and implementation of water development programs to meet projected demands for State projects over a 20-year planning horizon. The objective of the SWPP is to review current and future state water projects to insure orderly authorization and development of the state's water resources. The contents of the SWPP include, but are not limited to:
- An inventory of existing State wells, stream diversions and water systems;
- Identification of proposed States projects/developments;
- Assessment of future water demand projections;
- A water development strategy, strategy implementation and recommendations; and
- Incorporation of State agricultural water needs as outlined in the Agricultural Water Use and Development Plan.
Each State department is surveyed to inventory existing and proposed State sponsored projects, associated water requirements by island and hydrologic unit, and proposed sources to meet the demand. Agency plans for future source development should be coordinated with DLNR and integrated within the County Water Use and Development Plans.
