Hapuna Beach Water Solution in Progress

The DLNR Division of State Parks (DSP) is taking a multi-pronged approach consisting of three simultaneous and separate projects now in process to address temporary, short-term fixes as well as a permanent, long-term solution toward water restoration at Hāpuna Beach.

An investigation is underway to determine the causes of recurring leaks over the last several years. Findings will be analyzed with attention to design elements and materials to avoid similar miscues with a new system.

The temporary system will feature above-ground piping to deliver potable water for use at a pair of restrooms and showers at the beach. This short-term repair is set to be completed by July.

Design, permitting and installation of the new water system will be more complicated, with regulations, codes, availability of materials and contractors, and other related logistics to navigate. Completion for the long-term fix is slated for April 2024.
