A short aerial video showing the water system running through Kauai’s Hindu Monastery. The system is fed by a reservoir that receives its water from the Wailua River. The water from the reservoir then flows out to reach the monastery grounds. It winds through streams and ponds, supporting wildlife such as birds, crawdads, insects, thousands of fish and even freshwater turtles. Not to mention the many plants that thrive along the rivers edge. It is also utilizes in agricultural efforts. Our cows drink from it and we use it for growing papayas and watering crops in the garden as well as in our self-sustaining greenhouses.
