Central Oahu Watershed Management Plan

The Honolulu Board of Water Supply (BWS) has begun the development of the district-wide Central Oahu Watershed Management Plan (COWMP). This will be one of eight district water management plans that will comprise the Oahu Water Management Plan.

Goal

The overall goal of the COWMP is to formulate an environmentally holistic, community-based, and economically viable watershed management plan that will provide a balance between:

  1. the preservation and management of Oahu's watersheds, and
  2. sustainable ground water and surface water use and development to serve present users and future generations.
