The Maui Department of Water Supply launched a customer satisfaction survey that was issued along with the very first edition of their Waiʻike newsletter that was published this month.

The survey asks customers how they rate water service and water quality in their area, as well as goals outlined by the department.  The survey can be mailed in, turned in with bill payment, or may be filled out online at mauiwater.org.

Department officials say they are working to improve transparency and response times, and the survey will help them to determine how to move forward.

The department plans to issue the newsletters quarterly as a pilot project to keep customers informed of water issues to meet their goal of providing clean water efficiently.
