Kaneohe Beach Park: 2368332.3N 625874.8E
Marine water quality is ranked poor at this site, and ranked the worst in this project. Water samples consistently revealed low salinity and high enterococci values. The geomean was three times as high as the Federal EPA standard. It must be considered a hot spot and should be monitored during periods of heavy rain runoff. The collection point was within 500 meters of the exit points of Kaneohe Stream, and Kawa Stream, and a storm drain.
Kaneohe Beach Park is located in South Kaneohe Bay. These waters
are designated as a Class AA Zone and Water Quality Limited. Marine activities
include boating, fishing, and in earlier days, clamming. There is not too much
swimming here because the water is brackish and the bottom is muddy and it does
not appear very inviting.
