The intakes for the Lahaina Water Treatment Facility were cleared by approximately noon today, and water is flowing into the facility. However, the Department of Water Supply is asking for continued water conservation for the rest of the day so that water levels in storage tanks may return to normal levels.

Mahalo to customers for their water conservation efforts.


The County of Maui Department of Water Supply is requesting water conservation for customers in West Maui, extending from Olowalu to Kahana. At this time, no water is flowing to the Lahaina Water Treatment Facility due to blocked intakes which is most likely caused by this evening’s sudden, heavy rain in the West Maui Mountains.


The resort area of Kāʻanapali is on a separate water system and therefore not affected.


Customers are asked to conserve water for the next 24 hours. Personnel will attempt to safely clear the blocked intakes during daylight hours tomorrow.
