Groundwater resources at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park

The fragile natural and cultural resources such as anchianline pools, fishponds, and the nearshore marine areas are reliant to varying degrees on the groundwater that filters into Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. Excessive withdrawal of groundwater by development wells upslope and outside the park may threaten those resources with drying out and saltwater intrusion, thereby putting native plant and animals that live in those environments at risk. This brochure outlines these issues.
