Water Conservation Urged.

The Department of Water Supply is requesting that Upcountry Maui consumers voluntarily conserve water to reduce consumption. This request comes after recent high water usage in the Upcountry area, in addition to a reduction of water supply at the Wailoa Ditch, which supplies water to the Kamole Water Treatment Facility.

Conservation measures include refraining from washing cars and washing down sidewalks and driveways, and irrigating lawns, among other measures.

Officials with the Department of Water Supply thanked the public in advance for their understanding and cooperation.
