TUNNELLING FOR WATER.
A New nnd Important Industry
llelng Developed on Maul.
Tt has long been generally believed
that a large amount of. water could
be developed for the use of t ho planta
tions, by means of gravel tunnelling
under the beds of streams, but it has
remained for C. B. Wells, the shrewd
and far seeing manager of the Wai
luku Plantatiou to pioneer this
He secured the services of Mr.
Carl Waldcycr, one of the. leading
gravel miners of California, and cm
ployed him to run a tunnel in lao Val
ley just above the town of Wailuku.
This tunnel is now 700 feet in length,
and will be run about 100 feet funh
er, from which point lateral drifts
will be. run at right angles with tho
stream, and extending across the
valley. Over 1,0.00,000 gallons of
water in an unvarying stream have
been developed already, with indica
tion that a much larger amount will
be developed bv the drifts.
Mr. W. J. Lowrie, manager of the
H. C. & S. Co., which alvo owns
lands in, lao Valley, has com
menced a like enterprise under the
supervision of Mr. Waldeyer, the
contract for the- work having been
let to the six California gravel miners
who recently built the breakwater
at lao bridge in Wailuku. This tun
nel will be run 1500 feet up stream,
will be about 40 feet underground at
its terminus, and will yield several
million gallons of water. The tunnel
will be over five feet in hight and live
feet wide. It will be, timbered with 8x8
timbers set four feet apart, and lag
ged with three-inch lagging. All of
the timbers, lagging and wedges will
be coated with a preservative paint
which will render them practically
Ground has been broken and work
has been commenced on this tunnel,
just below the lao .bridge, from which
point the water, when developed,
will be carried into the Waihee ditch
from which the II. C. & S. Co., now
take water .from Waihee valley. It
will require eight or ten months to
complete tho tunnel.
Mr. Waldeyer states that from his
observation, he is convinced that
there is a sufficient amount of water
escaping underground to tho sea
which can be developed by scientific
tunneling, to practically fcuppiy all
the needs of central Maui1, and sup
plant the present pumping systems
so successfully and expensively main
tained on central Maui. ' I
Tho advantages of a successful tun
nel S3'stem are obvious. The i r ost'im
portautis tho immense savhiu coal.
The next in importance is an unvary
ing stream which will How by gravita
tion from tunnels which need neither
care nor repairs. the water deve
loped by this system is free from any"
taint of salt, and will rectify land on
which brackish water has already
Tunnels have been run on some of
the other Islands, but they been run
through side tills to tap volcanic, fis
sures. Tunnelling in river beds is a
much surer and more reliable source
from which to obtain water, and the
enterprise inaugurated on Maui i.. of
an importance winch can hardly be
estimated. Doubtless tho other lsl;
ands will profit by the example of
Mr. Wells and Mr. Lowrie and the
matter of scientific river-bed or
gravel tunnelling will be generally
Adopted throughout the Islands.
