HOVE Deepwell Troubleshooting in Progress
The Hawaiian Ocean View Estates (HOVE) Deepwell in Kaʻū is down, according to a report by the Hawai‘i County Department of Water Supply at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017.
Troubleshooting is being conducted to further analyze the problem, determine the needed repairs and develop an estimated repair timeline.
DWS is monitoring consumption and tank levels.
Due to this breakdown, the following are in effect:
- The drinking water spigots remain open for community access. While water
spigots remain open for general community access, users are asked to limit their
consumption to potable needs only. Your cooperation extends current water availability
in the reservoir.
- The standpipe facility for water haulers is closed until repairs can be completed.
- Water haulers will be able to access standpipe facilities in Nāʻālehu.
The DWS requests your cooperation, patience and understanding during this emergency.
Updated information will be published as it becomes available.
