FACTORS PLAN BIG
TO BRING HANALEI WATERS
THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN
One Mile Tunnel Planned
the Water can be diverted
to koloa when project
Tho American Factors, thru thelr
engineering department are plan
ning n great many Improvements In
their local irrigation water supply
One of tho big projects planned
nnd on which tho location survey
has been run is a tunnel thru tho
mountains behind Llhue to tap the
Ilanalel stream and divert It to
this side of tho mountains so as to
supply tho East Kauai Water Co.
with additional water.
This will release the Llhuo Plan
tation water that Is now being used
by tho water company from tho
Wallua river and at the same time
will allow the Llhue plantation to
give Koloa plantation surplus water.
The Ilanalel river will bo tap
ped at 1200 feet elevation and will
be brought thru a tunnel a mllo
long.. From tho outlet on this side
of the mountain It will be possible
to divert the water to tho Kapaa
homesteads, Hanamaulu section, Ll
hue section or oven to Koloa.
In order to send tho water' to
Koloa It will bo necessary to con
struct somo tunnels and ditches and
at present a force Is at work con
structing a tunnel on tho Koloa
ditch line. This tunnel will replace
one that Is now in operation, which
is causing considerable trouble ow
ing to the nature of tho ground In
which the tunnel was dug. Tho new
tunnel will bo constructed so as to
prevent this trouble1.
Tho plans call for supplying Ko
loa with ample water, but it will
be quite a while before all tho con
struction necessary will bo com
peted. BILL BALTHIS
