WRRC hosts a series of seminars during the spring and fall semesters at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. We are providing a forum to increase awareness of water issues pertaining to island hydrology—encouraging discussions of the management and preservation of Hawai‘i’s water resources with respect to climate, population demands, and contamination.
Note: In 2018 to 2021, WRRC collaborated with the ‘Ike Wai Project for the seminar series.
