Water restrictions in effect immediately for Waimea area



Affected area: From Waimea down to, but not including, Kawaihae Village Subdivision, Waimea Airport, Lalamilo Farm Lots, and Puukapu-Honokaia- Nienie Areas; South Kohala, Hawaii

This restriction notice is effective immediately and requires consumers to reduce water consumption by 25 percent

Due to the continuing dry weather conditions, the Department of Water Supply is declaring the affected area under WATER RESTRICTION effective immediately. Listed are some ways to conserve water and reach the 25% goal:

  • Wash full loads of laundry or dishes at a time.
  • Check faucets and pipes for leaks.
  • Serve drinking water only when requested.
  • Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator.
  • Do not let the faucet run unnecessarily.
  • When bathing, use water only to wet and rinse off.
  • Do not fill up the bathtub.
  • Use a glass to rinse when brushing your teeth.
  • Do not flush toilets unnecessarily.
  • Stop lawn sprinkling.
  • Stop car and boat washing.
  • Stop dust control watering.
  • Use drinking water wisely.

All agricultural users should keep water usage to a minimum. Irrigate only at night from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. This measure will reduce water loss due to evaporation and minimize water system drain during peak demand.

    Will they be sending out notices in the mail to the homes that will be affected?
