      The water resources of Molokai, Hawaiian islands. Contributor Names Lindgren, Waldemar, Book/Printed Material Water resources of Hawaii ́11 First part of three volumes on water resources of Hawaii for , , and TCU2 no. With: The purification of public water supplies / by George A. Johnson.   Why Molokai, With All Its Wonders, Is the Least Developed of Hawai‘i’s Islands Even centuries before Captain Cook’s arrival, its resources were exploited by outsiders.

      The Hawai‘i State Water Well project digitized all of the water well files at the DLNR, Commission of Water Resource Management (CWRM). Though public information, the files existed previously in print/paper format, so prior access to the information required going in person to the CWRM office. The map below shows the location of each water well [ ]. Hawaii’s fifth largest island, Molokai is only 38 miles long and 10 miles across at its widest point and is home to the highest sea cliffs in the world and the longest continuous fringing reef. Molokai remains true to its island roots, with a high percentage of its population being of Native Hawaiian ancestry who continue to preserve their.

      Nicknamed “The Friendly Isle” for its welcoming residents and open-armed invitation to visitors, Molokai is a rural land, nestled quietly among crystal waters and endless skies of blue. A far cry from the world of Oahu’s Waikiki, visitors here will find no traffic lights, zero shopping malls and no skyscrapers touching the clouds. What they. What Molokai does have are precious resources that are shared with the few lucky visitors and protected by residents who refuse to allow this beautiful island to go the way of the other tourist-driven islands. Molokai is a place where aloha is a lifestyle, not something put on for the tourists.

Like the others, it consists principally of a huge shield volcano, built up from the sea floor by many thousands of thin flows of basaltic lava.

The volume of the Kauai shield was on the order of 1, cubic miles. Through much of its growth it must have resembled rather closely the presently active.
