The pump for Hualalai Deepwell in North Kona is now on-island and installation will begin immediately.

In addition, water tankers and drinking water stations have been situated within the affected area for the public’s use.

Repairs to the deepwells in North Kona remain a top priority for the Hawai‘i Department of Water Supply.

The North Kona Water Restriction remains in effect.

All residents in North Kona must continue to restrict water use to health and safety needs (drinking, cooking, and hygiene purposes).
