As a resident of Hawaii since the 70's, I would add this: You seem to be missing a major point.

Maui politics is hard core Democrats in action. Trump is siding with the Hawaii Dems political machine.

What's not to like?

yes, that is sarcasm

Thus proving my point that hypocrisy is what politics in the US is all about.

How many Presidents and Congresses from both parties have ignored this?

of note:

The above article was published during the height of the Obama admin.

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has primary regulatory authority over the nation's injection wells, would not discuss specific well failures identified by ProPublica or make staffers available for interviews. The agency also declined to answer many questions in writing, though it sent responses to several. Its director for the Drinking Water Protection Division, Ann Codrington, sent a statement to ProPublica defending the injection program's effectiveness."

hawaii has been well aware of the problem since the mid 80's
