Due to a water break in the Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park, all water in the district of the park will be turned off on Feb. 14, 2017, park officials said.

The ​Kīpahulu ​visitor center restrooms will be closed and portable toilets available.​ Water fountains will be turned off. Visitors are asked to bring their own drinking water.​

​Potable ​water will be ​unavailable​ until further notice. ​Further updates will advise when water service is reestablished.


Recurring district water leaks and stoppages have occurred in recent years due to aging infrastructure.

In the next few months, the leak will be identified and repaired. Long-term, the park has plans to replace the water system in the next two years.
