The Department of Water (DOW) has issued a water conservation request for the entire Kalaheo area until further notice. Residents and businesses are asked to limit water consumption to essential uses only.
The DOW’s primary well and back up deep well have been damaged and are currently out of service. Personnel are working on repairing the system.
Essential water needs includes: cooking; bathing; and toilet flushing.
Water conservation measures include: refraining from car washing; reducing outdoor irrigation; and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.
The DOW thanks Kalaheo residents and visitors for conserving water during this time, and for their patience while crews work on the repairs.
An update will be sent as new information is presented.
