My was is from Kahawainui in Laie. This stream is formed from 9 gulches that combined from the streams that flow down from the Ko'olau.

In order to protect our wai and our source of life we must understand it's importance to our everyday lives. I can protect my wai by being considerate of the amount of wai I use and by keeping it clean from pollution.
