DHHL Water Policy Plan Draft

Vision

Our vision is that there will be adequate amounts of water and supporting infrastructure so that homestead lands will always be usable and accessible, to enable us to return to our lands to fully support our self-sufficiency and self-determination in the administration of the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act (HHCA), and the preservation of our values, traditions, and culture.

Mission

In a manner consistent with our values, the Hawaiian Homes Commission (HHC) and Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) shall strive to ensure the availability of adequate, quality water by working cooperatively to:

  • Understand our trust water assets;
  • Plan for our water needs;
  • Aggressively understand, exercise and assert our water rights;
  • Develop and protect water sources; and
  • Manage water systems.
