Planning and Feasibility Study


A total of 45 damsites were analyzed and ranked. Feasibility-level design studies which included preliminary geotechnical explorations were conducted at the five most promising sites. A key innovation in this project was the identification of offstream dam sites with low sediment loads adequate to supply the projected island water needs through mid-century. It also provided the technical basis for identifying and preserving from development the most important potential reservoir sites islandwide.
