Hāmākua Ditch

Hāmākua Ditch As a result of the 1902 Arthur S Tuttle report commissioned by the Bishop Museum to study the feasibility of bringing water to the Hāmākua area, two major ditches were proposed - the Upper Ditch and the Lower Ditch. The owner, Hawaii Irrigation Company, was originally known as the Hāmākua Ditch Company, Ltd. The Upper Hāmākua Ditch was completed in January of 1907, the Lower Ditch in 1910. Due to various disputes , by February of 1915, Hawaiian Irrigation Co. was taken over by new management (essentially that of Honokaa Sugar Co.)
