How do you bring the water to the surface?
In 1974, The State of Hawaii established HOST Park (Hawaii Ocean Science and Technology Park), a site for exploring emerging renewable and ocean based technologies. HOST Park is administered by NELHA (The National Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority). As Wikipedia states, “HOST Park is perhaps the largest single green economic development project in the world solely dedicated to growing a green economy.” At HOST Park, NELHA built a special pipe that reaches 3000’ underwater and pumps cold deep ocean water to surface. Also located at HOST Park, Kona Deep accesses that mineral rich deep ocean water and desalinates it using reverse osmosis while preserving its natural mineral and nutrient content.
