TMT claims that their project won't affect the drinking water and aquifer on Hawaiʻi in part because there is "very little precipitation above 8,000 feet". During the 133 days we have been here, its rained dozens times, to the point flooding at least 4 times. Its snowed, once in the middle of July, and weve had thunderstorms at night. Not to mention the continuous presense Lilinoe and all the moisture in her mists and cloudcover. Could just be a wet year, but looks like they are trying to build this thing on a slippery slope...
