All agricultural users should keep water usage to a minimum. Irrigate only at night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. This measure will reduce water loss due to evaporation, and minimize water system usage during peak demand.

For more information, contact the department at (808) 322-0600 during normal business hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
