However, the Boil Water Advisory remains in effect for residents of Waipoli, Polipoli, Middle Roads, Kula Highway at Keokea, Thompson Road and Ulupalakua.

DWS reminds residents and businesses of Upper Kula that if they did not lose water service during the Dec. 5 to Dec. 6 storm, then their water has not been affected. For residents who lost water service, DWS said if they reside on or near areas where E. coli/total coliform are present, then they should continue to boil water as a precaution.

Tips from DWS on how to boil your water:

  • Boil water for one minute and let it cool before using.
  • Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, food preparation and showering until further notice.
  • Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Potable water tankers are located in the following areas:

  • Fong Store, Ching Store, Ulupalakua Ranch Office, Kula Community Center, Rice Park, Silversword Condo — above Kula Lodge, Copp Road at Kula Highway and Bully’s Burgers.
