Keōpū Deepwell to Be in Operation Dec. 25
The Hawa‘i County Department of Water Supply has begun the disinfection and water quality testing process, which once successfully completed, will render the Keōpū Deepwell fully operational and ready for use.
The DWS anticipates this will happen by Monday, Dec. 25, 2017.
At this time, the 25% Water Restriction remains in effect; however, the DWS expects to downgrade to a voluntary 10% conservation once the Keōpū Deepwell is operating reliably.
Kona water tank levels remain stable and the DWS continues to monitor the water system and make adjustments as necessary.
The DWS sincerely appreciates the community’s efforts to reduce their water usage.
