Water Conservation Notice issued for South Kohala customers

by Thunda

AFFECTED AREAS: ĀHUALOA TO ANEKONA ESTATES, INCLUDING HONOKAIA, PU‘UKAPU, NIENIE, WAIMEA TOWN, LĀLĀMILO FARM LOTS, PORTIONS OF MANA ROAD, PORTIONS OF MĀMALAHOA HIGHWAY (HWY 19), AND WAIEMI PLACE; SOUTH KOHALA, HAWAI‘I

This is an important Department of Water Supply (DWS), County of Hawai‘i, message for Thursday, October 29, 2020.

The water storage in the Department’s reservoirs has decreased due to a prolonged lack of rainfall. Thus, a Water Conservation Notice has been issued for all Department of Water Supply customers in the affected areas effective immediately and until further notice. A Water Conservation Notice requests customers reduce water use by at least 10 percent. Status updates will be issued as necessary and made available on the DWS’ website, www.hawaiidws.org.

Performing the following steps will help to conserve water:

•Wash only full loads of laundry and dishes
•Check faucets and pipes for leaks
•Do not let water run when washing hands, shaving, or brushing teeth
•Reduce showering times
•Use water-saving devices whenever possible
•Use a broom instead of a water hose when gathering leaves and grass clippings

All affected water customers should limit water use for dust control and irrigate only during off-peak hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. This measure will reduce water loss due to evaporation, and minimize water system usage during peak demand.

To reach the DWS, please call (808) 887-3030 or (808) 961-8050 during normal business hours, (808) 961-8790 for after-hour emergencies, or email: dws@hawaiidws.org.

The Department of Water Supply thanks affected customers for their understanding.

This is your Hawaiʻi County Department of Water Supply.
