Q: Is there a map of properties with cesspools on Maui? Can it be accessed by the public? I’d like to know where sources of groundwater pollution are in my neighborhood, especially in times of flooding.
A: The State Department of Health collects cesspool data. We contacted them about your question and they gave us this link, which is part of the Hawaii Statewide GIS Program.
Class I should be selected for cesspools.
