Laie Water Company's main features and services include:
- A delivery system for a pristine source of pure water from a basal aquifer
deep beneath the ground. Positive hydraulic pressure plus a caprock prevent
surface water from mixing with water from the basal aquifer.
- Two pump stations, each with two pumps, currently draw approximately 1.2
million gallons/day from the aquifer for community use.
- Water from the pumps goes to a two million gallon tank on the mountain mauka
of the old Laie quarry. This tank acts as a storage reservoir and also provides
gravity-based water pressure throughout the system.
- The water flows from the tank through approximately 70,000 feet of transmission
mains and distribution lines that serve over 700 customers in Laie.
- LWC chlorinates the water to sanitize the delivery system; and LWC, City and
County of Honolulu, and State of Hawaii officials perform over 1,000 tests per
year to insure the quality of Laie's water and the safety of the people who drink it.
- The State Department of Health Safe Drinking Water Branch regularly
monitors the quality of LWC drinking water. In addition, LWC publishes
and distributes an annual Water Quality Report.
