Description In the Hawaiian Islands, planners and public officials have decided recently to raise the permissible level of urban development in central Oahu. The decision is opposed by many on the grounds that it threatens agricultural land as well as the sustainability of aquifers. A two-part procedure is presented for exploring the impact of such development and designing urban-expansion patterns that minimize them. First, a water-balance simulation model is used to calculate groundwater recharge as it...
