(BIVN) – The water conservation notice for an area of South Kohala is cancelled, and normal usage may resume, officials say.
On Wednesday, the Department of Water Supply thanked the community for its “cooperation and patience while temporary conservation measures were implemented to ensure drinking water was available to all customers.” The conservation notice was in place since July 2019, as a result of “unexpected equipment malfunctions.”
The affected area was from Puakō to Kawaihae, and included the Hāpuna Beach Resort, Mauna Kea Beach Resort, and Mauna Lani Resort.
Officials added on Wednesday:
DWS reminds customers that fresh, potable water is a finite resource and should be used efficiently and wisely.
