IMMEDIATE KAUNAKAKAI AND KALAE WATER CONSERVATION REQUIRED

KAUNAKAKAI, Molokai, HI – A mechanical breakdown affecting a water pump will severely affect residents and businesses in Kaunakakai and Kalae on Molokai. Until repairs can be completed, residents and businesses in the areas of Kaunakakai and Kalae should make every effort to immediately conserve water and limit usage to minimum requirements needed for health, safety and hygiene.  Water customers will experience low water pressure or no water as water tank storage levels diminish. The County is working with the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands to utilize a second well that DHHL has.

The County of Maui has mobilized a 5,000 gallon water tanker which is located at the intersection of Ala Malama Avenue and Kukui Place near the post office in Kaunakakai. It will be available in the evening and day time until repairs are completed. Residents are encouraged to fill personal containers at this location should water service diminish.

An estimated 1,275 water meters serving households, businesses and agencies in the Kaunakakai and Kalae areas are affected.
