The Hanalei Bay area on the north shore of Kauai offers unique and significant cultural, recreational, biological, and economic resources.  The coral reef ecosystem, as well as the internationally-famous beaches and world-class surfing and paddling opportunities, are all critically dependent upon water quality and a healthy watershed.  The Hanalei Bay watershed is a 33.1 square-mile area draining to Hanalei Bay along the north shore of Kaua‘i, including the Hanalei River, Waioli Stream, Waipa Stream, Waikoko Stream, and the Waileia/Puupoa Stream watersheds. The Hanalei River watershed is the largest of these watersheds (23.6 square miles), making up about 73 percent of the Hanalei Bay drainage area. (USEPA).
