AFFECTED AREA: Puako, Kawaihae Village to Kawaihae Harbor and Industrial area, and the following resort areas: Mauna Lani/Fairmont Orchid, Hapuna Prince, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, and adjacent subdivisions/developments; south kohala, Hawai’i
Due to the recent failure of the Parker Well #2, Department of Water Supply customers in the affected area are now under a Water Conservation status. Water Conservation calls for a voluntary 10% reduction in water use. Listed are some ways to conserve water and reach the 10% goal:
Wash only full loads of laundry or dishes at a time.
Check faucets and pipes for leaks.
Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator.
Do not let water run when you wash, shave, or brush your teeth.
Reduce showering times.
Use water-saving devices.
Use a broom instead of a water hose for cleaning.
Irrigate at night and with a pail for small jobs.
Use drinking water wisely.
All agricultural users: keep water usage to a minimum. Irrigate only at night and during non-peak hours, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Minimize water use for dust control.
