Kalihiwai residents asked to conserve water due to power outage

The Kauai Department of Water is asking Kalihiwai residents to conserve water due to a power outage that occurred Saturday morning. 


Officials say power has been restored to the Department of Water's Kilauea well site, however,  the Kalihiwai booster pump station is still without electricity and cannot produce water to area residents until repairs have been completed.


Kauai Island Utility Cooperative personnel are working on repairs to a downed power line in the area. Repairs are expected to be completed by approximately 1 p.m., according to KIUC officials. 

Residents and businesses in the Kalihiwai area are asked to continue to limit their water consumption to essential uses only. Essential water needs include cooking, bathing and toilet flushing.

Water conservation measures include: refraining from car washing; reducing outdoor irrigation; and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.

We will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.
