Immediate water conservation requested in ‘Ele‘ele

‘ELE’ELE – The county Department of Water issued an immediate water-conservation notice for ‘Ele‘ele customers, including the Port Allen Small Boat Harbor areas.

Customers are advised to limit water use to essential needs only, such as drinking, cooking and sanitation purposes in order to avoid a full water-service outage in the system.

During DOW’s routine system assessments following severe-weather conditions, crews discovered a damaged transmission line in the ‘Ele‘ele system. DOW crews are preparing to conduct emergency repairs to the damaged transmission line. The repairs will prevent the well sites from replenishing storage tanks in the ‘Ele‘ele system.

Conservation measures include refraining from recreational water use and turning off appliances and plumbing fixtures that automatically draw water, such as irrigation systems and ice machines.
