Hanalei residents asked to conserve water due to system malfunction
The Kauai Department of Water is issuing a water conservation request for the Hanalei community until further notice, due to a system malfunction.
Area residents are asked to limit water consumption to essential uses only.
A DOW crew is addressing the issue. Meanwhile, water from Princeville Utilities Company, Inc. is currently servicing the Hanalei area.
Hanalei residents and businesses should still expect low water pressure until the DOW can restore its system later Wednesday.
Essential water needs includes: cooking; bathing; and toilet flushing.
Water conservation measures include: refraining from car washing; reducing outdoor irrigation; and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.
The DOW thanks Hanalei residents and visitors for conserving water during this time, and for their patience while crews work to restart systems.
For more information, please call the Department of Water at 245-5455 during business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or Police Dispatch at 241-1711 after business hours.
