Ka‘ū  residents in Nā‘ālehu and Wai‘ōhinu to South Point are asked to cut back on water usage.

Due to a large demand for water and ongoing dry weather conditions, the Department of Water Supply is requesting consumers in the affected areas to reduce your daily water usage by 10%.

Listed below are some ways to conserve water to reach the 10% goal:

  • Wash full loads of laundry only.
  • Wash full loads of dishes only.
  • Serve drinking water only when requested.
  • Do not let the faucet run unnecessarily.
  • When bathing, use water only to wet and rinse off.
  • Do not fill the bathtub.
  • Use a glass when brushing your teeth.
  • Do not flush toilets unnecessarily.
  • Stop lawn sprinkling.
  • Stop car and boat washing.
  • Stop dust control watering.
  • Use drinking water wisely.

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 of Water Supply at (808) 961-8790 during normal business hours—7 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
