Description The source of most of Oahu's domestic water supply is from ground water occurring in the permeable materials of volcanic rock. Movement of the ground water is intrinsically through thin cracks in basaltic lavas. This project studied passage of an organic-rich liquid through cracks in basalt. Permeability of "blue rock" portions of aa basalt was determined as 2.6 x 10^-4 gallons/day/ft^2 of water, classing the rock as impervious. A range of 7.7 to 10.4 per cent in porosity values was obtained...
