13 of 17. One of the two cooling water discharge pipes from the Hawaiian Electric Kahe Power Plant. Each pipe is about ten feet in diameter and discharges a considerable amount of warm water. Notice the discharges pipes eject the water upward to prevent erosion to the seafloor. When diving near the outfall, stay low to avoid getting caught in the powerful surge of water.
