A new publication led by ʻIke Wai and UHERO’s Environmental Policy and Planning Group evaluates the projected change in groundwater recharge, sustainable yield, and groundwater replacement costs with future scenarios of watershed management, urban development, and climate change in the Puʻuloa (Pearl Harbor aquifer). The study, published in Hydrogeology journal, finds substantial savings in groundwater replacement costs with investment in watershed protection. Authors include Leah Bremer (UHERO and WRRC); Ahmed Elshall (ʻIke Wai); Kim Burnett and Chris Wada (UHERO); Laura Brewington (Pacific Risa); Jade Delevaux (The Natural Capital Project); and Cliff Voss https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10040-021-02310-6
