In 1970 the Kahului Development Company began construction of a collecting basin and four deep injection wells for the disposal of storm runoff from a residential development in Kahului, Maui. This presented a unique opportunity to evaluate the suitability of the site for artificial recharge and to study the possible effects recharge of storm runoff might have on the local ground-water body, both from a water quality and a hydraulic standpoint. The report discusses such tests. The most serious potential water quality problem may be a reduction in injection efficiency owing to possible well clogging by heavy sediment loads. The general water quality effects of injecting storm runoff into the ground-water body will be to decrease the dissolved solids concentration of the ground water in the vicinity of the wells.
