It will be of general interest ta
tho peoplo of the Islands to learn

And what has hither to been a
somewhat difficult trip is now made
Leasy to any one who can ride

one-half miles from the top of the
Crater. Even a stranger may now

top and not bo under tho necessity
of taking a guide.

for permanent improvements have
been in developine, transportine
and conserving water for irriga
tion. As tho life of tho plantation
depends upon its water supply,
and as tho cost of operating tho
plantation is largely increased or,
decreased by tho methods used in
distributing tho water over tho
fields, for irrigation, the following
information in regard to the water
development at Waialua should be
of material interest to you.
There are 10 Compound and
Triple Expansion Pumps in five
pumping stations, and one at the
mill, with a total pumping capaci
tyof 72,000,000 gallons of water
every 24 hours, and ample water
to run said pumps at full capacity
Also three Gasoline Engine
Fumping Stations. Capacity 3,000,
000 gallons every 24 hours.
There aro twelve small reser
voirs with a total capacity of about
60,000,000 gallons, all situated in
the lower part of the plantation,
below tho GOO foot level used for
the purpose of storing water from
the smaller ditches, and from tho
pumping stations at night. There
aro tvo larger reservoirs, with
total capacity of about 200,000,000
gallons, which aro supplied with
water from three gulches, namely
Opaeula, Kawaiiki, and Waimea
Theso gulches depend for water
"upon the rainfall in the mountains
and records show that the rainfal
at tho heads of tho first two gulch
cs mentioned averages from GO, to
80 inches per year. Tliero is a re
cord of one year showing a rain
fall of 151.4G inches, at the head
A large dam is just nearing
completion at Waialua which will
hold tho water from two largo gul
ches which adjoin each other, at a
short distanco from the dam. -There
is a largor and steadier How
of water hero than from any other j
stream in tho island of Oahu,
draining a largo watershed ot se
veral thousand acres of the sum
mit and slopes of tho Koolau
Tho dam is to have capacity of
2,500,000,000 gallons. There aJe
two other streams of fresh water
coming from two other gulches,
containing larger streams and
draining larger watersheds than
tho Opaeula and Waimea. streams
which up to tho present time have
been practically untouched. It is
intended to make use of this at a
With the water development
above outlined, as coming from
the gulches, and conserved by the
dam and various reservoirs, it is
believed that about 12,000 acres of
land, all below tho 700-foot level
can bo irrigated by these mountain
streams, tho greater part or every
year; and it is possible that when
the streams '.have been further
developed, experience will show
that tho water may bo profitably
used on lands, above the 700-foot
level, thereby producing large
crops on the upper lands.
Above the 900-foot level, it is
estimated that from four to six
thousands acres of good land can
bo cultivated, "with cane, a larA
pari oL which land 'is comparative
ly level, with soil of good depth
and quality. The rainfall on these
upper lands ranges from 40 to 60
inches per annum, as shown by
records, which is about tho same
rainfall as in ordinary years is
found in Hamakua, Hawaii;" Kau,
Hawaii and Lauhala, Hawaii. And
it is probablo that from these up

Tho money, expended on this
water development proves to be a
most wise expenditure, and for the
best interests of tho plantation,
and all connected with it, whether
stockholders or bondholders.
The result is that Waialua Plan
tation, is "going to havo 12,000
acres of land under sugar cultiva
tion, all of which will bo irregated
with fresh mountain water, brou
ght on tho plantation b' gravity,
during a greater part, of tho year(
making it possible that tho pumps
and the necessary expense of
pumping will only bo called upon
occasionally, and in addition there
will bo about 6,000 acres of non
irrigated lands planted in cane,
with good soil and a sufficient
rainfall to warrant a conservative
estimate of from three to four tons
of sugar to tho acre, from theso
Assuming that tho 12,000 acres
below the 700-foot lovel will pro
duce G tons to the acre, which is
about tho avorago for tho past five
years; and assuming that tho 6000
ncres of non-irrigated land will
produce 3 tons to tho acre, this
wQiild indicate that Waialua will
produce about 45,000 tons of sugar
por annum, with possibly a still
further expansion, in area -and
crop, in tho future.
