CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU
HONOLULU, HAWAII

ORDINANCE ______________

BILL 66 (2003)

A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE

RELATING TO WATER.

BE IT ORDAINED by the People of the City and County of Honolulu:

    SECTION 1. Since ancient times, Hawaiians have treasured water as the spiritual fount of all life and as a precious resource that must be preserved for the benefit of all. The council finds that Oahu’s drinking water is a vital necessity of life and should be maintained free of any chemical additives, except those necessary to make it safe and potable for human consumption. Drinking water should not be used as a means for delivery of chemicals for medical or dental purposes when other alternatives are available. The purpose of this ordinance is to prohibit the introduction of unnecessary chemical additives, considered to be medication, into Oahu’s drinking water supply.

    Using the drinking water system for delivery of chemical additives for medication purpose is neither cost effective nor environmentally sound since more than 99 percent of the chemicals are not ingested and will be discharged into the environment when washing cars, watering yards, flushing toilets, etc., thereby wasting tax dollars.

    It should not be the role of government to override an individual’s freedom of choice, or right to informed consent, or compel individuals to purchase purified water to protect their own health or have peace of mind. Article XI, Section 9, of the Hawaii State Constitution guarantees the individual’s right to a clean and healthy environment.
