THE WATER SUPPLY.
ItCSOIXTIOH PASSED BT THE I'EIVT
COUNCIL. A STATEMENT OF
At a meeting of tho Privy Council
held yesterday afternoon, tho follow
ing resolution was unanimously
Whereas, It appears by a state
ment of facts this day submitted by
the Minister of the Interior, hereto
attached, that there is now prevail
ing a severe and unusual drouth in
the District of Honolulu, Unhu,
seriously affecting the water supply,
and amounting to a public disaster;
Resolved, That tho Minister of
Finance be authorized to pay the
drafts of tho Minister of Interior
up to the amount of 83,000, for the
purpose of paying tho expense of
pumping water from the artesian
wells into tho main pipe and reser
voirs of the city.
The following statement by the
Minister of Interior laid before the
Council explains itself :
TACTS CONCERNING THE YVATEll SUl'l'LT
OF THE C11Y OF HONOLULU.
The following facts are hereby
submitted to the Privy Council for
consideration in connection with a
proposition to appropriate money,
under the power given by the Con
stitution, for the purpose of supple
menting the water supply of Hono
lulu, a deficiency in which now ex
ists by reason of the drouth.
The rainfall in inches for the six
months from October 1st to March
31st, during the last four years, has
been as follows:
Total... 12.00 34.00 39.43 10.71
The average for the four months
December to March during tho same
period has been :
Total.... S.39 22.10 22.23 1.47
The average rainfall for the snme
months for fourteen years, from
1874 to 1888, have been aa fol
lows: 1S7-1-S8 1888-9 1874-83 1888-0
October 2 34
December... 4. 85
Janu.uy . . . .4.72
Total.. 20.18 10.71 17.57 4.17
In round numbers the rainfall
during the last four months has been
a trifle over one inch a month, as
against a usual four .and a quarter
inches per month.
Tho results of this dry weather
are shown by tho following state
ments of water supply:
Not including the aitcsian wells
the water supply of tho city is ob
tained from the following sources:
Makiki, gallons per 21 hours. ..1,000.000
iiapcna, ' " " " ... 200,&OJ

Kapena springs, gallons per 24

Kajcua Sti cam, gallons per 24
Luakaba Stream, gallons per 24
Halfway llonso Sprlng3 313,440
Decrease from normal supply.. 2,830,070
The increase in the Halfway
House springs at the last measure
ment is accounted for by the exca
vation of tho springs, causing a
large increase, but not suflicient to
offset the decrease from other
sources. About ono-third of the
amount of water coming from the
Luakaha Stream at the last measure
ment was from newly-excavated
springs situate between Lunkaha
and the Pali.
Of tho Luakaha and Halfway
Hotiso springs supply, about J-, or
say, 032,880 gallons per 24 hours,
is used by water right owners for
taro patches in Nuuanu Valley,
leaving the actual available supply
for the city, only 1,530,144 gallous
per 21 hours.
The artesian wells havo not been
mentioned in the foregoing estimate,
as the pressure from them ia so
slight that they are at present of but
little assistance in supplying the
city. Waikiki and, since the dry
weather, a portion of King street
have been supplied from this source
with-an inferior service. With a
views to so far as possible tempor
arily remedy the short supply of
water, a test of tho pumping capa
city of a steam lire engine has been
mode, water being pumped from an
artesian well at Thomas Square into
the maiu pipe Jea'ding to the Makiki
reservoir. A test of CJ hours ro-
suited in forcing 85.676 gallons into
the reservoir. The amount aotually
pumped was somewhat larger, as
laps all along tho line of tho pipo
wero opened. At this rate the cost
per day of 12 hours will bo:
Coal, 2 tons $ 30 00
Engineer. . . . C.70
Oil, packing waste, lights, &c... 2.00
and the amount of water pumped
will bo 157,988 gnllons per 12 hours.
The above cost can bo reduced by
getting coal at n lower price, as it
probably can be, although that was
the price which had to bo paid for
the last Departure Bay lump coal.
The amount of water can also be
somewhat increased by pumping
into the Nuunuu reservoir, as the
elevation is less than tho Makiki,
the former being 90 feet and tho
latter 1G0 feet above sea level, and
thero will consequently be less pres
sure to pump against. Tho test was
made at Makiki on account of thero
being fewer privileges on that lino
of pipe, thereby giving a better
opportunity to measure results.
The shortage of the water supply
has become so great that during n
large portion of cacli twenty-four
hours a considerable part of the
town is without water, although all
avnilable sources of supply are
running into the pipes, and irriga
tion has been reduced to a low point.
This has become a source of incon
venience and loss, and is constant
menace in case of (ire.
It is submitted that the severe
and unusual drouth, reducing tho
water supply to an almost unprece
dented degiee, constitutes a public
disaster within the meaning of the
Constitution. That the only means
of meeting the emergency is by
pumping from the artesian wells in
the manner above described. That
the legislative appropriation for tho
running expenses of the Honolulu
Water Woiks is insullicient to pay
for such expense.
Tho Privy Council is therefore re
quested, by virtue of tho power
given in Article 15 of the Constitu
tion, to sanction the appropriation
of $3,000, or so much thereof as
may be needed, for the purpose of
paying the expense of pumping
water from the artesian wells into
the main pipes of the city.
