The Maui Department of Water Supply is recommending customers in the Central and South Maui areas to boil water before consumption due to possible contamination from flooding.

Affected areas include Kahului, Wailuku, Pāʻia, Spreckelsville, Puʻunēnē, Kīhei, Wailea, Mākena and Māʻalaea.


At this time, there are no water quality violations. This advisory is a precautionary measure for public health and safety purposes.

Bring Water to Rolling Boil for 3 Minutes:

Customers should boil water at a rolling boil for 3 minutes prior to consumption or use, or use bottled water.

DWS personnel are flushing water lines to ensure clean water, and laboratory personnel will take samples to verify water quality today.  Additional information will be issued once samples show no contamination.

Water Conservation for Wailuku & Kahului:

The Department of Water Supply is also requesting all consumers in the Wailuku and Kahului areas to conserve water and to avoid any unnecessary water use until further notice.

The Department extends its appreciation to its customers for their cooperation and understanding. Please call the 24-hour hotline at 270-7633 if a water-related problem occurs or if there are any questions.
