(BIVN) – The Water Restriction has been lifted for the North Kona area, and replaced by a Voluntary Water Conservation.
From the Hawaiʻi County Department of Water Supply:
Effective immediately, the 25% mandatory North Kona Water Restriction, that has been in effect since June 6, 2022, is officially downgraded to a 10% Voluntary Water Conservation.
Interim repairs have been made to the Kalaoa Deepwell, warranting the downgrading to voluntary conservation. The Department feels confident that the water needs of the community will be met with the 10% voluntary conservation in effect and will continue to monitor the water system and make adjustments as necessary.
The Department would sincerely like to acknowledge the community’s efforts to reduce their water usage throughout the water restriction. MAHALO for your kokua!
