Fresh, potable water is an everyday miracle in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To have enough to supply millions with (relatively) few constraints on usage? It’s almost unimaginable. And, perhaps, too precarious to want to imagine.
Of course, the water in Hawai’i serves more than latecomer humans. Endemic land species of every kind, exotic imports, and unique hybrids do not spring from saltwater.
