Introduction - Stream surveys and the DAR Freshwater Database

For more than five decades, the Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) has surveyed streams, estuaries, lakes, ponds, reservoirs, ditches, and diversions throughout the Hawaiian Islands to provide critical information for monitoring, assessing, managing, and protecting freshwater resources.  During the 1990’s, the Hawaii Stream Assessment (HSA) was the first attempt to compile data on streams statewide, and, in subsequent years, HSA data and information from additional surveys and relevant biological studies have been combined into the large, growing database maintained by the Division of Aquatic Resources.  The data are now retrievable in almost an innummerable number of formats from the DAR Aquatic Surveys Database.  The five volumes comprising the Atlas of Hawaiian Watersheds and Their Aquatic Resources are based information in the database.
