Ten deep electrical resistivity soundings were completed across the island of Hawai?i near the town of Waimea in an effort to locate high-level, dike-impounded water. The resistivity data did not support the existence of a high-level water occurrence. Instead, the data show that a thick basal fresh-water lens underlies the area.
