Water conservation notice issued due to breakdown of Honokohau Well


Affected Area: From Keopu to Puukala; North Kona, Hawaii

Due to the breakdown of the Honokohau Well, Department of Water Supply customers in the affected area are now under a Water Conservation status. Water Conservation calls for a voluntary 10% reduction in water use.

Listed are some ways to conserve water and reach the 10% goal:

  • Wash only full loads of laundry or dishes at a time
  • Check faucets and pipes for leaks
  • Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator
  • Do not let water run when you wash, shave, or brush your teeth
  • Reduce showering times
  • Use water-saving devices
  • Use a broom instead of a water hose for cleaning
  • Irrigate at night and with a pail for small jobs
  • Use drinking water wisely

All agricultural users: keep water usage to a minimum. Irrigate only at night and during non-peak hours, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Minimize water use for dust control. For more information, please contact Mr. Daryl Ikeda at 961-8790.
