The purpose of this study was to determine the changes in stream water quality related to variations in land use patterns and to establish some baseline data for assessing the Hawaii State Water Quality Standards for surface waters. Effects on water quality were determined by collecting and analyzing water samples taken from four sites that were located along the course of Kalihi Stream from October 1971 to August 1972. The sites were selected within different land use areas along the stream to account for any variation in contribution from undeveloped and developed lands. Water samples were analyzed for physical, chemical, bacteriological parameters as well as pesticides and heavy metals. Rainfall for the drainage area and stream discharges were also recorded during the study period. (Modified author abstract)
