The County of Hawai’i Department of Water Supply is asking customers in the Keauhou to Keahole area, up to Puukala, to voluntarily reduce water usage by 10 percent due to the breakdown of the Honokohau, Holualoa, Hualalai, and Kahalu’u “B” wells.

Residents in the area are under a water conservation status. The DWS has provided a list of ways to reduce water usage by 10 percent:

Wash only full loads of laundry or dishes at a time.
