Abstract: A literature search on the location and other characteristics of wells producing 79°F (26°C) water or hotter on the island of Hawaii turned up one pertinent publication, THE INVENTORY OF BASIC WATER RESOURCES DATA: ISLAND OF HAWAII. According to this publication, five drilled wells meeting this requirement are located in the Puna and South Kohala districts. They produce water with temperatures ranging from 790F to 129°F (26°C to 54°C) with chloride contents of 254 ppm to 6200 ppm from elevations of 274 feet to 982.4 feet and static water levels of .56 to 5.24 feet. The diameters of these wells range from 10 inches to 15 inches. Tables and maps follow. Included are a drilled well index, well location maps, and water quality tables.
