Beneficial Uses of Surface Water in Lihue
You are here
Another use of this important water system is to provide non-potable water — irrigation water — to critical government locations, including the Lihue Gateway near the airport, the Kaua’i Police Department’s headquarters, the State of Hawaii Judiciary complext, and Kaua’i Community College. Non-potable water is also delivered to the Vidinha Stadium area, where youth soccer and football league games are played year-round.
The water system enables both visitors and locals alike to engage in ecotourism activities. Kauai Backcountry Adventures (KBA) conducts inner tubing experiences through these waterways and guests can float down these important routes to learn more about how important it is to develop and maintain sustainable water to build a Sustainable Kaua’i!
