Residents in some Kauai communities urged not to drink tap water

KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Kauai County Water Department is asking residents and visitors in some areas of the Garden Isle to refrain from drinking tap water, after weekend flooding affected the water supply.

People living in the Wainiha and Haena areas on Kauai are being asked to not drink any tap water. They're also being asked to conserve water until power is restored in those areas.

The Department of Water is currently using generators to help fill storage tank sites at pumping stations.
