Water conservation requested for Wainiha, Haena areas

WAINIHA — The Department of Water has issued an immediate water conservation request for all Wainiha and Haena residents, until 6 a.m. Wednesday. Residents and businesses are asked to limit water consumption to essential uses only, in order to avoid a water outage.

A fire hydrant was hit in the area this evening, causing the DOW’s storage tank to drain. DOW personnel are on their way now to the area’s well site. Water conservation is requested while personnel work on resetting the pump and restoring water service to the area.

Essential water needs include cooking, bathing and toilet flushing. Water conservation measures include refraining from car washing, turning off automatic sprinklers and outdoor irrigation systems, and using water wisely indoors and outdoors.
