Lake Waiau on Maunakea

Lake Waiau is a small lake just below the summit of MaunaKea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. It also is one of the highest lakes in the United States with an elevation of 13020 ft (3,970 m) and is the only alpine lake in the state of Hawaiʻi.

As others have indicated there is a Waiau Elementary School which I assisted as a state administrator. I am not certain that there is a town or place called Waiau. I would have liked Waiau Elementary School to have been accepted as correct.
