|In April 1983, local TV news programs, reported that the Mililani Wells were contaminated with FOUR different VOCs (CHEMICAL Volatile Organic Compounds). Click Here> That was the first time any well contamination was revealed to the public. What the public didn't know at that time, was that the Hawaii Department of Health and Honolulu Board of Water Supply already new in February of 1981, that the Mililani Wells were contaminated with VOCs. … and, they also new, as far back as April of 1977, of the first known well contamination on Oahu, that occurred in Waipahu — with extremely high levels of VOC contamination. The Hawai'i Department of Health and Honolulu Board of Water Supply did not reveal to the public what they knew about well contamination until many years later, and then only limited information was revealed to the public. The facts were only fully revealed to the public in 1993, not by the State, or City, or the Hawaii Department of Health, but by the NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL / 1993 Publication 'Groundwater In Hawai'i' ] This publication is a must read for every resident of Oahu — anyone who reads this publication will be shocked and appalled to find out what wasn't revealed to them by the responsible agencies at the time — the extent of contamination, the number of different contaminants, and the health effects associated with exposure to those contaminants.

Does this scenario of government water suppliers not revealing the extent of water contamination and related health effects to consumers, and telling the public that the water supplies are perfectly healthy and safe, 'sound familiar' ? ? ? Have you ever seen the movies 'Erin Brockovich' with Julia Roberts and 'A Civil Action' with John Travolta?
Today, over 191 wells on Oahu are contaminated with many different VOCs (CHEMICAL Volatile Organic Compounds). Click Here> Virtually all the wells that can service most of Oahu's areas: North Shore—Mokuleia, Waialua, Haleiwa, Waimea, Pupukea, Sunset Beach; Wahiawa; Mililani Town; West Oahu—Waianae; Kapolei—Ko'Olina, Makakilo, Ewa, Ewa Beach; Waipahu—Royal Kunia, Village Park, Waikele, Seaview, Crestview, Waipio; Pearl City; Aiea; Foster Village; Salt Lake; Moanalua Valley; Kalihi; throughout town to Wilder area; Ala Moana, McCully; Moiliili, Kapahulu, Kaimuki; St. Louis Heights; Palolo Valley; Maunalani Heights; Wilhelmina Rise; Diamond Head; Kahala; and East Oahu—Waialae Nui, Kalani Valley, Waialae Iki, Aina Haina, Hawailoa Ridge, Niu Valley, Kuliouou, Hahaione Valley, Mariners Ridge, Port Lock, Hawaii Kai, Kalama Valley, Queens Gate; & Waimanalo.
In addition, virtually all the water distributed throughout Oahu,
contains up to THREE different DBPs.
In addition,virtually all the water distributed throughout Oahu,
contains various levels of NITRATE.
The following are the FOUR Important Water Quality Issues for Oahu:
(#1) Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)VOCs are Carcinogenic (Cancer Causing) & Have Many Other Serious Health EffectsFor the EPA & Hawai’i Dept. of Health Health Advisories for VOCs Click Here
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) can be absorbed through the skin’s pores and inhaled while taking a Hot Shower, Hot Bath, Washing Dishes, and Standing over a Heated Pot of Water while Cooking! Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are also ingested by Drinking Water or Beverages prepared with Water.
(#2) Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs)DBPs are Carcinogenic (Cancer Causing) & Have Many Other Serious Health EffectsFor the EPA’s Health Advisories for DBPs Click Here
Disinfection Byproducts (DPBs) are ingested by Drinking Water or Beverages prepared with Water.
(#3) Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Such as NITRATE & LEAD
For the EPA, Hawai’i Dept. of Health & Honolulu Board of Water Supply Health Advisories
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are ingested by Drinking Water or Beverages prepared with Water.
WATER TASTE: The higher the levels of TDS, the worse the Water, Ice, Beverages & Food prepared with Water will Taste.
(#4) HARD WATER
(HARD WATER, is caused by the hardness minerals Calcium and Magnesium in the water)
Virtually ALL of the water on Oahu is HARD WATER.
On Oahu, the water hardness ranges from Slightly Hard to Very Hard
“When water is only slightly or moderately hard, many people are not as readily aware of it, but they suffer from its damaging effects nevertheless. When a switch is made to soft water, they become aware of an improvement in water quality.”
