Effective immediately, the Department of Water Supply is asking all consumers in the Waikapu, Kehalani Mauka (above Honoapiilani Highway), and Upper Wailuku Heights areas to cease all unnecessary water use until further notice.

The Department of Water Supply continues to experience very high consumption in the Waikapu/Wailuku area and Department of Water Supply water tanks are being depleted. Your immediate reduced water usage may prevent service interruptions.

Water tanker trucks will be available at:
Wailuku Heights Park (off of South Alu Drive) and Hookahewai Street in Waikapu.

To help the Department of Water Supply minimize service interruptions, your cooperation is needed by doing the following:

• Do not water your lawn or irrigate ground cover
• If you need to wash the car, go to the car wash. Most of the car washes on Maui are fitted with recirculating water
• Check in and around homes for leaks


The Department of Water Supply is diligently working to resolve this matter.


Please call the 24-hour hotline at 270-7633 if there are any questions.
