Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to establish a water quality baseline on Waikele Stream, and West Loch Estuary now that the Mililani WWTP no longer discharges effluent into Waikele Stream. Grab samples will be collected weekly from each of the six pre-selected sampling stations along Waikele Stream up to and including West Loch Estuary following the procedures per Standard Methods (1992), 18th edition, Sections 1060A and 1060B. The collected water samples will be tested at the Navy Public Works Center (PWC) Environmental Laboratory. The duration of sampling and the number of pollutant analysis will depend on the availability of funds to support the required laboratory tests per the current PWC rates as listed in PWC Pearl Notice 7030 (1993). The obtained results will be analyzed and compared with available water quality data on Waikele Stream before August 1986 when the Mililani WWTP terminated discharge of effluent into Waikele Stream. The results will be also compared with the State of Hawaii DOH (1990) Water Quality Standards. -BKA
