Voluntary Water Restriction in Effect for Parts of Maui

MAUI (KHNL) -  A voluntary 10 percent water reduction is being requested of all customers in Kahului, Wailuku, Waihee, Maalaea, Paia, Puunene, Kihei, Wailea, and Makena.

Officials say below normal rainfall totals and diminishing water levels in aquifers are forcing them to take action.

Residents in the affected areas are being asked to check for leaks and to reduce their water use.
