Kokee Ditch

Kokee Ditch

The Kōkeokinae Ditch is an irrigation canal on the island of Kauaokinai.

In 1923, construction began on the Kōkeokinae Ditch system to open the mauka hills to sugar cane production.

By 1926, the Kōkeokinae Ditch was completed, diverting water from Mohihi Stream and the headwaters of the Waimea River in the Alakaokinai Swamp at an altitude of about 3400 feet. About one-fourth of the Kōkeokinae Ditch supply irrigated the highland sugar cane fields below Puokinau okinaŌpae reservoir on Niu Ridge, and the balance irrigated the highland fields east of Kōkeokinae Road.
