Unfortunately, Hawai`i's infrastructure is in desperate need of upgrading, including its antiquated water delivery and waste removal systems and roads. All levels of government should put taxpayer dollars to good use by repairing, replacing, and maintaining proper water and sewer lines. This course of action will have a multiple effect: it will increase the number of housing units available, improve the quality of life for residents, and energize the local construction industry. Hawai`i's trades and construction industry depend on steady residential and commercial property development. But development depends on adequate infrastructure, such as roads, water, and sewer systems to support and maintain it.
