Water restrictions have been canceled for the South Kohala area.

The initial restrictions were put in place in July after equipment malfunctions. Areas impacted were Kawaihae, Kawaihae Harbor, Hāpuna Beach Resort, Maunakea Beach Resort, Mauna Lani Resort Puakō and South Kohala.

The Hawai‘i County Department of Water Supply reminds customers that fresh, potable water is a finite resource and should be used efficiently and wisely.
