The installation of a new 1.8MW backup generator at the Waihee Wells on Maui will affect the water supply in parts of South Maui today through Thursday afternoon.

Contractors will be working on connecting the new generator into the existing switch gear.

During this time, the wells will be shut down for six hours each day from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Customers in Kihei, Wailea, and Makena are asked to reduce water usage from today (Tuesday, November 29), to Thursday, December 1.

The Waihee Wells are the primary water source for South Maui and are capable of supplying 13 million gallons of water per day.

Once the generator is installed, it will enable the Department  of Water Supply to provide water from these wells in the event of an extended power outage.

Customers should call the 24-hour service line (270-7633) only if a water problem occurs.
