The county of Maui completed an environmental assessment for the development of a Tank Site Well at Iao.  The site is located approximately 2 and a half miles southwest of Wailuku at the already existing 3 million gallon Iao Tank site.  The purpose of the proposed outfitting of the site with a pump and controls is to distribute pumping over a wider area of the aquifer.

WEST OLINDA TANK REPLACEMENT

The County of Maui, Department of Water Supply (DWS) proposes constructing a new 300,000-gallon concrete tank in Olinda.  The West Olinda tank would replace the existing 50,000 gallon tank and is expected to improve the life efficiency of booster pump systems.  In addition, the new tank will provide storage capacity for another 30 to 50 years.
