We believe these projects reflect some of the major needs in our community <br />and are supported in large part by o ur partner community groups and organizations. We plan to <br />work toward these projects through the upcoming year . Please also forward this letter to the <br />department head s and officials you deem appropriate for their knowledge and consideration. <br />These items are listed in no particular order. <br />1. Potable Water in Kawaihae. The Kawaihae community continues to experience a <br />severe lack of infrastructure to supply potable water , which has limited the development <br />of other much needed infrastructure in the area . Despite existing and exceptionally high <br />water costs for Kawaihae land s north of the industrial area , a recent notification from the <br />Department of Hawaiian Homelands (DHHL) has alerted affected residents of a 38 0% <br />increase in water supply costs within the next ten years. (Please see the DHHL notice to <br />residents attached.) The South Kohala CDP Action Committee has been actively involved <br />with the Kailapa Community Association, which has looked into this issue at great length <br />for many years . We seek funding for alternate sources of potable water for the area, and <br />increased support and collaboration amongst County and State officials over the matter. <br /> <br />
