Arakawa asked the county council to approve money to appraise the 8,764 acres of land, along with the ditches that distribute the water. "In the plantation era -- Wailuku Water Company's predecessor used to be Wailuku Sugar -- built this ditch system, and it was taking the stream flows, draining the streams and rivers in this area dry to feed its sugar plantation," said Isaac Moriwake, an attorney with Earthjustice, which had represented Maui community groups who wanted the stream flow restored in Waihee River, Waiehu Stream, Wailuku Stream and Waikapu Stream. That was the practice for more than a century, but with the closing of the plantation era, waters that had been diverted for pineapple and sugar can return for everyone's use, according to supporters.
