Full water service has been restored to Kilauea customers of the Kaua’i County
Department of Water after electrical problems connected with two electric pumps
in the area were corrected last week.
Customers in Kilauea, Waipaki and the
Kalihiwai areas lost water Wednesday when the pumps stopped operating,
prompting a call for voluntary water conservation, according to deputy water
manager Ed Tschupp.
Full service was restored when repairs to one of the
pumps was completed, he said.
The department asked the public to continue
water conservation until electrical problems with the second pump were
corrected and the pump resumed bringing water to storage tanks in the area,
