Pilau Kai

Sometimes the water around the Hawaiian Islands can get a bit dirty. Whether caused by run-off, sewage spills, or anything between it is important to know to prevent unnecessary sickness.

Helping you stay up-to-date with any water quality issues in the Hawaiian Islands


The idea was born out of a little bit of curiosity and experimentation as well as a need for convenient access to the State of Hawaii’s Water Quality alert system. I wanted to be able to have quick access to up-to-date information on potentially contaminated water before our family went to the beach for the day. I built a web server to stay updated with any new information the state published, found at https://pilaukai.com. This server also acts as the backend data and notification service for the iOS app I built natively in Swift, also named Pilau Kai.
