The Department of Water (DOW) is issuing a water conservation request for residents in Lihue, Kilauea and Hanamaulu areas until further notice.
The DOW’s system is experiencing low water pressure due to a recent electrical power outage caused by Monday night’s storm.
A DOW crew is on site now addressing the issue.
Area residents should expect low water pressure and are asked to limit water consumption to essential uses only.
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 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.

The city is being a grinch. That's according to Kaneohe residents who've been told that the rent at their affordable housing apartments is about to go up as much as $600 a month.
