DWS Emergency Update

(KHNL) - The Department of Water supply reports the North Kohala system flush has been completed, and the water is safe to drink.  The boil water precaution for North Kohala Water Supply customers is no longer in effect.

Due to the current status of the North Kohala water system, the following advisories are in effect:

  • Customers are asked to voluntarily reduce domestic water use by 10% until both wells are on line.  Hawi Deep Well #1 is projected for completion of repairs in 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Previously established water spigots at Kahei and Hala'ula are back in operation for those who need it.

Customers are asked to conserve water for domestic use by 10% until further notice.  For a list of ways to reach the 10% water conservation goal, go to www.hawaiidws.org and click on the North Kohala Water Emergency link.
