Waiohulikai Stream

The Waiohulikai Stream flows through urban Kihei, and is hidden in many places. It starts high on the watershed, and flows through Kihei High School, then under Pi’ilani Highway, and through a long underground culvert to cross Liloa Drive. Here it flows through a long open ditch towards the Trinity by the Sea, church. before entering a series of stormwater drains that flow under the paradise gardens Condominiums, then it crosses South Kihei Road and enters the Waiohuli kai Wetland. From there it flows towards the sea, and ultimately enters the Waiohuli Kai Fishpond.
