Due to ongoing repairs to its wells in North Kona, the Department of Water Supply is issuing a Notice of Water Restriction Notice.

The Water Restriction Notice requires consumers to reduce water consumption by 25%.

Below are some ways to conserve water to reach the 25% goal.

  • Wash only full loads of laundry or dishes at a time.
  • Check faucets and pipes for leaks.
  • Serve drinking water only when requested.
  • Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator. Use drinking water wisely.
  • Do not let water run unnecessarily. Please shut the water off when you wash or brush your
  • teeth.
  • When bathing or showering, use water only to wet and rinse off.
  • Do not fill up the bathtub.
  • Use a glass to rinse when brushing your teeth.
  • Do not flush toilets unnecessarily.
  • Stop lawn sprinkling.
  • Stop car and boat washing.
  • Stop dust control watering.

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.
