Central and South Maui urged to conserve water Thursday and Friday

WAILUKU, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) – Maui's Department of Water Supply is asking customers in central and south Maui to conserve water on Thursday and Friday so that crews can complete the installation of new electrical terminations at the three wells in Waihee.

Customers are asked to turn off irrigation systems and use water only as needed for health and safety purposes in order to extend the supply available in the storage tanks until the wells are back online.

The three wells that will be out of service provide a total average of five million gallons of water per day to Central and South Maui. The affected area includes Paia/Kuau, Spreckelsville, Puunene, Kahului, Wailuku, Waihee, Waikapu, Maalaea, Kihei, Wailea, and Makena.

Authorities say this electrical upgrade project will improve the reliability of the water system.
