The Department of Water has issued an immediate water conservation request for customers in Wainiha and Haena until further notice, due to an electrical power outage that is affecting pump stations and water facilities in the area. Customers are urged to limit water usage to essential needs only, such as drinking, cooking and sanitation needs.
Water conservation measures include refraining from car washing, turning off automatic irrigation systems, ice machines and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.
