The North Kona Water Restriction remains in effect as the Hawai‘i County Department of Water Supply continues its efforts to repair the area’s deepwells.

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

Due to your efforts to restrict water use, water levels in the tanks have remained stable.
