An Emergency Water Restriction notice is in effect for North Kona.

The Hawai‘i County Department of Water Supply Honokohau Deepwell is out of service; all residents and customers in North Kona must immediately restrict water use to health and safety needs (drinking, cooking, and hygiene purposes) only.

Cease all irrigation activities.

Cause of failure is being assessed to determine what needs to be done and how long it will take. Adjustments to the water system have been made to provide customers a minimum level of water service. Without everyone’s cooperation, there will be areas that will experience periodic loss of water service or lower water pressures.

DWS will be suspending service to all temporary service and irrigation accounts as well as actively restricting specific accounts due to excessive water use.
