PC: Department of Water Supply

A 25% water restriction for certain South Hilo customers in the vicinity of Kaiwiki Road was reduced to 10%.

The Department of Water Supply initiated the restriction in early August after the South Hilo water pumping station was damaged by a felled tree, affecting 574 accounts. DWS reports repairs to the pumping station have been made, but a 10% water conservation will remain in place until further notice.

The water restriction affects customers in the vicinity of Kaiwiki Road from Wainaku Street to Mauka Terminus, including all side streets: Kulana Kea Drive and Wainaku Street between Pua Lane and Haaheo Road.
